As Fine a Piano as Ever Went Over a Pianoman's Threshold for $315
(the Retail Price of a Schubert Is $450) Pay $8 or 10 a Month
A few days ago Reed-French's Eastern office promised the Schubert Piano Fac
tory to have their Portland store take care of three cars of Schubert Pianos, due to
arrive here about the first of October. The Schubert people were in a quandary as to
how to handle these pianos, as they had discontinued their agency here after the cars
had left the factory. There was no one in Portland to look out for the pianos.
The Schubert Company are friends of this company, and as a business courtesy we
agreed to Sell these pianos, provided we could sell than in bur own way, namely: To
the factory cost add the actual freight and a reasonable wareroom charge no other
appendages allowed. The Schubert people consented to this.
Our method of felling does away wit h the retailer altogether and brings the two
principals together it's 'Wker to player," and nobody else.
We will sell you a beautiful Schubert for less money than retailers will want for
a very ordinary piano. Get "up-town" prices and then see usr-this is ths way to
make the test.
