Of Interest to
'New Goods! New Values! New Enthusiasm for
Now! Summer Furniture
Is Added to the August Co-operative Sale
Comfortable summer chairs of wicker, hickory, fumed oak, natural oak, ivory reed and Chinese grass. Many
have cretonne upholstery. All are in good plain styles, shaped for coolness and real ease. You know how often
the porch chair lacks that indefinable something which gives to your body and makes it entirely restful. Sit
in these chairs, however, and you will find they are built by expert comfort givers.
They are chairs which will be just as valuable next year
as this, but we have only one or two of a kind and these price
reductions will hurry them out, making room for other new

Why a Certain Store Buyer Could
Get Only $148 Worth of Furniture
When He Wanted a Carload
Every summer and midwinter leading American manu
facturers hold a furniture exposition at Grand Rapids.
Buyers from every part of the United States go there,
elect from samples shown and order in the quantities
they can use.
This year the exhibition opened Monday, June 23.
Between 300 and 400 makers showed their samples.
More than 2200 retail buyers (a record number) attended.
Everybody came at once, instead of leisurely, as usual.
Factory show rooms were crowded.
Buyers waited on themselves.
So great was the rush of orders that one factory after
another closed its doors. In two or three days many big
plants were sold up. They could take no more orders for
deliveries within six months. To protect their regular
customers, factories used a card index system. They sold
only to stores that had dealt with them in 1918,
and they refused to take orders for larger amounts than
in 1918. For instance, one buyer said, "I will take a car
load of this and "
"Sorry, sir," interrupted the factory salesman, who had
looked up his rating with the company, "you can have
only $148 worth, that being the amount you purchased
from us last year."
The Grand Rapids Furniture Exposition usually lasts
a month. This year it closed within eight days. There
was no more furniture to sell.
Why Does Everyone Want Furniture?
You probably know yourself. You know you have been
saving until the war was over. Until the boys came home.
Many stores all over the country saved, too. Kept
their stocks low. Waited for prices to go down. Prices
did not go down because materials were high and labor
scarce, and these conditions are expected to continue. '
So now the war over everybody wants furniture at
once and somebody will have to wait.
The Meier & Frank Company succeeded in
placing orders for even finer furniture than we
have ever had. It tvill be a great pleasure to
show the new suites and pieces as soon as they
In the meantime there is plenty of good furniture here
on our floor and in our warehouses, many pieces of which
:an be bought most advantageously during the August Sale.

and All
MEIER & FRANK'S is, so far as we know, the first store certain!;
the first store in these parts to hold these Co-operative bales.
The plan the idea behind these sales is essentially simple, as man
great ideas are.
For more than a week we asked the public every reader of oar
daily advertisements and that means potentially every reader of tnd
local papers to suggest items they would like us to advertise and
the prices at which such items should be advertised.
Recruests have been numerous affording at once a gratifying proofl
that an immense number of people read the MEIER & FRANK store anj
nouncements and that the idea of co-operation in this way appeals tq
them strongly.
We have endeavored to comply with all requests we have had time tc
classify and act on thus far and we will continue to do so within reason
able limitations. s
