Quality Is Our
A successful merchant once said that he con-
sidered honesty the greatest single factor for suc
cess in retailing. "Build integrity into your busi-

Wie words! And that Is one of the reasons
why, we pay so much attention to the quality of ther
goods we sell. It is so easy, to skimp on a lining
or substitute inferior leather m the inner sole of a:
shoe. But then we would not be running an honest
business, and it would gradually crumble into ruinsJ
Selling honest merchandise at a fair price is
more than an ideal with us. It is our "insurance
policy" against failure.
