SELECTING and buying groceries for a
home is a much more difficult task than
purchasing in any other commodity. When one
buys a new pair of shoes an automobile, a coat
or a pair of shoes, the problem of deciding comes
only at long intervals.
But with groceries every rising sun presents
three new problems: "what to have" for break
fast, dinner and supper. No wonder the gro
cery question is the housewife's biggest problem.
There is an answer. It is to be had at this
store. . We specialize on tempting foods and in
such large variety that planning a meal no long
er carries a dread.
