It's Not a Question of Profit
This January Clearance Sale of ours. We want to reduce our stocks for invoicing to the very lowest notch. Many
lines we are glad to reduce at the expense of all profit we ask only cost. Other lines like Pictures, Games,
Blocks, Toy Books, Fancy Goods, Jewelry, Silverware, Etc. what we call unseasonable goods goods which
take up the room we need for new lines already purchased and on the way -these lines we don't ask even
cost for; we would rather have half their value and the room they occupy.
On staple lines the goods you buy every day the reduction runs from 1 0 to 20 per cent. Only a few
lines the prices of which are controlled by the manufacturers such as Patent Medicines, Photographic Papers,
Waterman Fountain Pens, Etc. that we are not permitted to cut have not been reduced. On everything else we
save you in many instances the dealer's profit and in no instance less than 1 0 per cent.
