TRY THE DRUG STORE FIRST
How many times have you tried nearly every store In town for
some little thing, and then as a last resort, tried the dmg store, and
found it. Just remember next time and try this drug store first. We
are always pleased to order items you may deed.
Subscriptions and Advertising Are the Only Sources
of Revenue a Newspaper Has and Often the Sub*
scriptions Do Not Pay for the Cost of White Paper
Advertising today, especially in newspapers, is the greatest
business ¿etter there is. This is acknowledged by men who
know. People read advertisements in newspapers. They have
been educated to do so. Every merchant in our town ought to
advertise. You remember the story about John Wanamaker?
The nnt day he was in business his receipts were $24.64. Ho
64 cents -- and spent the $24 the next day in adver-
tising. We all can’ t duplicate thia
this feat, but according to the
best statistics available three per cent ef the gross sales should
he put aside for advertising.
Possibly you will say, ‘T don’t need to advertise. I’ve been
in this town thirty years and everybody knows me.”
Probably they do, but did you ever stop to think of the
sales you lose because your fellow competitor advertises? He
may advertise the same goods you have in your stock, but the
people don’t know you have them. The other fellow
sale because he advertises. And, then, how much more
you would do if . you did adverttoe?
We know of one merchant who advertised • lot of goods
at 19 cent* a yard. They cost him 27 cents. He took a clean
loss, but while the sale was going on he could buy new goods
at 12 cents. He put them in with the other goods and the
result was that he cleaned his shelves of the old goods and he
broke even on the deal. Advertising and good buying liqui
dated his stock without a loss.
We can't all be John Wanamakers. but we all mti adver
tise in proportion to our business. Results will be sore if you
advertise honestly and give service. A newspaper can bring
people to your store, but it can’t make peonle buy your goods.
Your clerks must do that, and it dependflBn the service you
give as to how successful your business win t
