NYLON HOSE IR-CHuge Firtit Quality Nylon from Top t« T«« Are Still 1 a Pair at GRABER'S The Same Low Price You Have Always Paid at This Store Despite the Fact That OPA Ceil ings Have Been Removed GRABER'S Have Not and Will Not Raise Prices on Merchandise We Have in Our Store During the Next Few Days GRABER'S Will Deliver 1046 Pairs of 45-Gauge Nylon Hose To the Women of This CommunityvWho Have Registered at Our Blytheville Store '..-.'•• We are now preparing cards lo marl to those who have registered, asking yon to come to our store- to pick uj> hose. We exp**l to hnve these curds in the mail today. If you have not registe red and do not receive a card, please do not ask for these hose, as the present supply Is limited and we have only enough lo lake care of the 10-16 who have registered. ' ' Whether or not you wanted OPA continued, we know you are interested in the question, "What's going to happen to prices at Graber's?" Here's the answer: Graber's will maintain the same price policy of marking merchandise that we have followed since the day our first store was opened—a policy that requires that every item offered for sale must be marked at the lowest possible price. » This accounts for the fact that prices arc the same at Graber's today that they were before OPA regulations were discontinued. Only when we arc forced to pay more for merchandise . . . and only then . . . will you see a change. Furthermore, we have instructed our buying staff not to buy any •merchandise regardless of how critical, where the prices quoted by the manufacturers arc inflated beyond any reasonable justification, and for this reason there may be times v*hcn we will be temporarily out of some items. Graber's never have, and never will take advantage of a condition such as exists now. We will continue th« policy of figuring our profits on the basis of pennies on a volume business, rather than in dollars on a few transactions. • We're proud of the reputation we have . . . and we'll guard it carefully . . . and we repeat . . . "OPA or no OPA . . . you can continue to depend on Graber's to bring you the tops in values . . . day in and day out. . . year jn and year out." YOM, as a consumer can help considerably, when doing your shopping, to insist on reasonable prices by refraining from buying at greatly inflated prices. We have confidence in the ability of American manufacturers to produce, and if we will all buy only on the basis of current needs, it will not be too long before,the law of supply and demand which will regulate prices wiM again be in effect.
