think that you are more likely to get these at a good Cash
Store than you are if you buy on credit ? A credit store has
to make up for the many little losses, so must weigh and
measure far more closely than its Cash competitor. Then, if
you for any reason should feel the least dissatisfaction and you
are a credit buyer you hesitate to say anything because you
are owing money. You are not independent. You stand
the loss and say nothing.
All this is very different if you trade at a Cash Store. You
