During these two days, 'the merchants who are participating will have an array of bargains and merchandise that will outdo any previous special .ihoppin* period, even the Christmas season. ArH if the public responds, to it a< its sponsor _ u,c Merchants Committee of th. Brazosport Chamber of Commerce ._ is convinced that it win, the local merchants will try it af>ain periodically. H has to do with the B. P. B. you've been seeing in The Facts for th* ps«t week. This B. B. B. means Brazosport Better Buys, and is a brainchild of. the Merchants Committee. Merchants participating in th* Tlraros- port Better Buys have those three words' 1 in their advertisements, and also on banners they will have in their store fronts Tuesday and Wednesday. According to T. C. Selman. who heads this activity of the Chamber of Commerce, the promotion has » number of objectives. first, the merchants would lik* to have the public discover that their stores arc open arirf dn business every weekday, not just on weekends: and that bargains ran be « attractive in the early part of the week as on weekends. Another point is a demonstration that Brazosport can get together to form one large business district, with one shopping unit complementing the other. This would fupport the Chamber's contention that the Brazosport business district is bigger and better than cither the Frccport or Lake Jackson business centers. Also, it is felt that there are a great many new people in the area who are not Sc- quainted with the stores and services offered in (heir own communities. So Brazosport Belter Buys , vi |l 8l , o «rve as an incentive for an area-wide get- acquainted session. . Participating merchants have sgrewi that their special bargains will not only b* attiartive in price, but will be their 'regularly featured merchandise. The Brazncpon Better Buys will b« held during rrjular store hours. -LATE BULLETINS. , hat BIRM,NC;HAM, *,„,,„«, _ ri ,,,, „, h o, , 1.000 employes of the Cadburv Brother, rhm-oU,, factory were sent home-,ecause th* chocolate wouldn't harden.
