WOULD YOU BUY IT All merchants-nearly everybody who makes a living by selling something--can be divided into two distinct groups: GROUP ONE: The merchant whose goods give so little value that he, like the old-time vendor of gold-bricks, cannot expect "repeat" orders. He must make all his profit from the first (and only) sale. Then he must seek buyers not yet familiar with his goods or reputation. GROUP TWO: The merchant whose goods are sold in the hope of winning the purchaser's continued patron, age. He can exect only a mod- ate profit. Thus, one sale per person is not enough. Each article must be good enough to make the buyer want to buy it again. The merchants who advertise in this paper belong to Group Two They could not stay in business unless they earned "repeat" orders- unless they gave you honest value for every dollar you spend with them That is why each article they sell must be so thoroughly satisfactory that you would later answer "yes" to this, the most important question a merchant can ask a customer: "Would you buy it again?"
