COME TO PORTLAND
SEPTEMBER 1 TO 6, 1913
The entire week'of Monday to Saturday, September 1st to 6th, 1913, has been set aside by the Jobbers
and Manufacturers of Portland to meet buyers from all parts of th6 Pacific Northwest.
The object of establishing buyers' week is primarily to help the Jobbers and Manufacturers become
better acquainted with their trade throughout the three States of Washington, Oregon and Idaho; also to
demonstrate the advantages of Portland as a wholesale market. It is only by visiting this city, seeing the
enormous stocks that are carried, and getting in closer touch with the Jobbers and Manufacturers that the
retail merchants can fully realize the advantages of trading with this city. In many lines by far the largest
and most complete stocks on the Pacific Coast are carried in Portland, Oregon. The largest volume done on
the Pacific Coast in many jobbing lines is done in Portland, Oregon. You-will be amazed at what will be
shown you during Buyers Week.
