To those who have dealt with us since we started in business, and to those who more recently have favored us with their patronage, we ask co-operation in this campaign which we believe will result in good to all our patrons. x The government is not only requesting but demanding that the prices of food commodities be kept down to the lowest possible margin of profit and in order to comply, we are compelled to change our plan'of doing business, and have decided to put our business on a strictly CASH basis. Under the new system which has been adopted the Quality of merchandise on which we have built our reputation for the past 35 years will be maintained above all, altho the prices will be greatly reduced on our goods from prices under the old way of doing business. Our plan has been carefully studied out but its introduction has been delayed until convinced that it would work no hardship but prove of advantage to all. THE NEW SYSTEM ·FIRST--Material reduction in prices. Prices will be reduced and marked in plain figures,, so the customer may see the price of every article. These prices will be net cash at our store. SECOND--We Deliver. Our delivery system will be maintained just as efficient and serviceable as at present, but will carry the small charge of 5c for each delivery regardless of the size or cost of same. The new system will give to all customers the opportunity of saving the expense of this service if they prefer, inasmuch as it will be to their financial interest to do so. THIRD--We Extend Credit. Our credit system is one of the big features of our business, and it is our intention to continue the extension of credit, but all accounts must be paid in full semi-monthly or monthly. Positively no accounts carried over 30 days, and for this service we will charge the small sum of one cent on every dollar or part thereof. This New System Goes Into Effect FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 1918. New System Explained. In explanation of this new system of merchandising, and to avoid misunderstandings, we quote a few of the new comparative prices to show where savings are effected.
