The Changing Times
The era of Chain Stores came about because a
group of men with large capital could, by staftiug
stores in different localities increase the outlet of
merchandise eminating from one source.
The Chain Store system is nothing more than
any other store except the buying part is concentrat
ed at oue place. The buyers for these stores have
their headquarters at the source of production and
they buy direct from the packer or the producer.
It goes without sayiug that a buyer who can buy
the same sort of merchandise for several, hundred
stores can command a better price than a buyer for
just one store.
. The secret of advantageous grocery prices in St.
Johns is this ability to buy in connection with many
other stores. That is why you have had established
by this store better prices than prevail almost any
where in Portland. m
Coupled with this buying capacity, the activity
of the owners, the acquaintance with the locality be

any one that we can do business at less cost than the
