Winola Battles To 7-7 Tie in Conference Tilt Does Advertising Sell Merchandise? IN THIS CORNER—Bobo Olson, above, meets Randy Turpin in scheduled 15-round match at Madison Square Garden, Oct. 21. The winner will be the world middleweight champion. (NEA) o If you're a retailer it won't take you long to give the answer. For truly enough it's the retailer himself who sells merchandise. Advertising can create desire, provide buying information and direct customers to the store — but advertising cannot take credit for consummating the sale. The retailer makes the sale — he sells the merchandise at his store from the stock on hand. And that goes for nationally known brands down to, private brands. Sure, the retailer likes advertising to help him move goods from his store to the customer's home. And because "AH Business is Local" — he especially likes the kind of advertising help that sends the customer to his store in his own home town. For the only sales that count for him are the ones that ring his own cash register. That 's why many nationally known com' pan 'tes with famous brand names spend more advertising dollars in local newspaper advertising than any other media. They, too, know that "All Business is Local" and so they help the local retailer because he 's the fellow who makes the sale — and the more be sells the mort they sell. In Illinois (outside Chicago) there are over 45 local daily newspapers, like this one. Here national advertising b printed with the product information that customers need and the local source of supply. NOTE: Retailers, Wholesalers and Factory Salesmen: you can help make your sales volume greater. Urge your factory advertising or sales manager to use local newspaper advertising in your territory.
