WHAT are they SAYING about YOUR STORE? JJo women say of your store—and you know how women compare shopping notes—"Oh, th«y have such good things there, no doubt, but it's so much pleasanter at So-and-so's and I always SEE so many new things." . P e o p I e hat GLOOM You MUST value the ATTRACTIVENESS of light," says William R. Hotchkin, (for many years a Wanamaker executive) "for merchandise never shows half its desirability in a dark store and people soon learn to ignore the store that is stingy with its light." ODD WINDOW and store lighting makes the middle-of-the-blpck location as good as the corner. Good lighting brings new people into the store, and keeps the old customers coming back. Good LIGHTING makes good SEEING. LIGHTING in display windows is regarded as the most effective form of advertising. Many windows need almost as much lighting in the daytime as .they do at night if they are to be fully effective in attracting buyers. Lighting is too important to guess about. It pays to get expert opinion and advice. Many merchants 'Who have asked to have their store lighting and window lighting checked up have been surprised to find how much below the desirable and profitable standard their lighting was. It pays to know the truth. (The average coat of electricity In homes Borvscl by the Han Joaquln Tower Sy»tem since 1913 ... i , . , h«i deceased B8.6 per cent. "Cost of living" (rom U. S.
