You or anybody else who knows the intrinsic value of
goods know at a glance that the prices we are offering are
much below what is usually regarded as the standard, but
the best possible appreciation of these values can only be
obtained by a personal visit to our store— so we expect to

themselves. But to make our invitation more emphatic, we
want to say just this— there isn't an article that we sell
which does not mean a material saving to your pocketbook,
so be sure to come— if you don’ t buy we’ll be just as good
friends as ever.
