Fourteen Years Ago
the doors of the Forest Grove Shoe
Store were opened.
Fourteen Y ears-a long time to look ahead,
but seemingly not so distant in the past.
Fourteen years have made great changes
in the business representation of our city.
Very few of the earliest stores survive.
Some are gone: many have moved away;
others have taken their places.
To-day Forest Grove is more prosperous
than ever before-a mighty good proof that
it is splendid place in which to reside.
Tc-day our trade is larger than it has ever
been——a mighty good proof that our store is a
splendid place to buy shoes.
You would be surprised to know the large
number of families who have been our steady
customers for fourteen years, though there
ars some who have never given us^ the oppor
tunity to show them the shoe service of which
we are so proud.
Our slogan is: “ Each Year a Better Year,”
and right now we are preparing for a record
breaking season. We are purchasing the
very latest styles and patterns of the best
grades of FOOTWEAR on the market, and
will soon be ready with complete lines in
many widths. Kindly pass the word along to
any of your friends who have had to send or
go out of town to be fitted.
We believe styles will not be so extreme in
design as those that startled everybody last
season. The new shoes are beautiful models
And the latest novelties you will find ex
We have several lines of shoes which we
are going to discontinue handling and will
make a price to you that will make a big
saving in your shoe bill.
