MEIER & FRANK'S Lower Price Downstairs Store is essentially as
the name implies, a place where merchandise is to be had at lower
prices but it is more
It is a place where GOOD merchandise is to be had at lower prices be
cause it is an integral part of the MEIER & FRANK Store famous for
more than 60 years for selling good merchandise.
The diversity of the lines the Lower Price Downstairs Store handles is
at once apparent when one considers that it is a complete store in itself,
paralleling in its stocks many of the lines carried in the main store sections.
Its value-giving is proverbial, for within the short space of 3 years it
has launched and carried to a successful conclusion more big value-giving
events than any store of its kind in the whole Northwest. That, too, is to
be expected of a store with the MEIER &. FRANK resources behind it and
with the MEIER & FRANK principles to guide it.
It is very accessible all elevators and escalators connect with the Down
stairs Store. It has three direct street entrances.
It is a pleasant place to shop flooded with daylight, scientifically
Above all it extends to patrons the same SERVICE as the Upstairs
Store there is no discrimination at MEIER & FRANK'S between Upstairs
and Downstairs patrons in the matter of charging purchases or other
courtesies between the store and the people it serves.
The Downstairs Store offers this page of values for the first week of
its 3d Anniversary Sales.
