wily we can undersell the other fellows
So many of our customers ask us this question: "How can you sell for
so much less than your competitors?"
OA FEW REASONS,,
Last year our average expense was just 11.26 percent. Our advertising
expense was less than three-fourths of one percent. Ask any merchant what it
costs him to do business and if he tells you the truth it will be from 15 to HQ
percent, and that he spends at least three percent for advertising. We have no
book-keepers, delivery wagons, fancy fixtures nor a lot of other items that force
the other fellow to get a longer margin on his merchandise. We buy for cash
and sell for cash and in such quantities as: 31,150 dozen towels, 9,350 bed
spreads, 10,000 pieces of oil cloth, 21,250 pieces of percale, 25,900 pieces of ging
ham, 300,000 pair of shoes, 100,000 pair of blankets, $80,000 Worth of handker
chiefs. Buying in these quantities, direct from the manufacturer, and buying
and selling for cash arc positive proof that we can undersell all competitors, in
cluding Mail Order houses. Think it Over.
