The era of Chain Stores came about because a
group of men with large capital could, by starting
stores in different localities increase the outlet of
merchandise eminatiug from one source.
The Chain Store system is nothing more than
any other store except the buying part is concentrat

It goes without saying that a buyer who can buy
the same sort of merchandise for several hundred
