We feel Uial they deserve this time off and that our closing docs not seriously inconvenience our customers. Several of the stores hero have elected to slay open on Wednesday afternoon, instead of abiding by the will of the majority. Their plan, is to let their employees off on different afternoons (hiring the week. This plan will work in some stores, but in the stores with only a very few employees, it is impossible to carry on their business properly when, one is absent. As a' few stores staying open will force otliovs to dp likewise, our oirginal plan is doomed to failure. We would like to know what our customers think about this matter. Docs our closing inconvenience you to the extent thai, you would rather have us remain open, or do yon feel that we are right in giving our employees this time off during the hot summer months 1 .'
