NEW YEAR GREETING
ITH the low prices being secured for all products of the farm, comes
a call for reduced profits by dealers selling the necessaries of life.
Volume of business enables a merchant to guage his cost of doing busi
ness and the larger the business, t'.ie smaller the overhead cost of selling goods. I
have the largest assortment of goods used on the farm or in the home, of any mer
chant in Morrow County. I own my building, I employ active and experienced help,
and just enough to serve the trade in the most economical manner and support no
idlers. I have had 25 years experience in supplying the needs of. the community and
know what to buy and how to buy in the most advantageous manner and quantities.
A clerk selling $25,000 00 worth of merchandise does so at much less cost than one
selling $5,000.00 during the year. That is the plainest evidence that I do business
on smaller margins than my competitor.
Your prosperity means my prosperity, and I am going to give the citizens
of Morrow County the advantage ot my ability and experience In the merchandising
game' by starting the New Year with a complete revision of prices for the needs of the
home. Cash is the greatest aid to lower prices, and every price quoted will be for
cash, and will be as low as it is possible to handle first-class goods at, and I shall make
it a point to have only such gjods as will cause you to return for more.
Quality has ever been my motto and shall be ridgidly adhered to incvcry
, You are invited to call, compare prices, secure samples and be your own
judge. Help me to do a larger volume of business and thereby reduce the
prices of your needs.
we wish you All a
Happy New Year
