At the beginning of the New Year I find myself face to face with these facts- too
many shoes and not enough money.
in Just Three Days
Thursday, Friday and Saturday
In order to accomplish this I am forced to throw my entire stock into one big heap
and slaughter all. Every pair of shoes in my store is included. Ladies' Men's and Chil
dren's Shoes must all go in this sale.
Money Saved Is Money Made
This is your opportunity to save money and buy shoes for the entire family. My
stock was purchased before the big advance in shoes. Even at my regular retail prices
I could not replace the stock today, but regardless of this you will find a tremendous re
duction on every pair of shoes in my store.
I Am Not Going Out of Business
and you will find during this sale, the same treatment you have always had in my store.
You will find me ready to stand back of every pair of shoes purchased during this sale,
and should you during the rush be misfitted I will gladly make any exchange necessary to
satisfy rriy customers. A

Sale Starts Thursday Morning
at 9 o'clock and will continue until Saturday night. Store open
evenings. Everything sold strictly for cash.
