Unequalled Values are Now Plentifully Offered in All Departments
February the shortest month of the year finds us with one of the greatest tasks of the year to
accomplish. Spring is pressing forward its demands for room and for fresh stocks. They must be met
at whatever sacrifice. Time is short the month is short and so prices are shortened.
Substantial savings are abundant throughout the store--every purchase
you make at this sale means money saved--you buy at lesser cost than
at any other period.
A full month would be all too little time to accomplish the complete selling of our Winter stocks
hence this short month means prices reduced beyond precedent savings without parallel. This sale is a
complete and sweeping clearance movement affecting all lines.
