JJid I y.ay ''like merehaiitsV" Well that's not ex.'ictly true. Ritllior, 1 should say MORE lhan nioix-lianls! Tlie reason? If you've Ijcen in my storo you know the rtason. Our bitsincKs has grown until I am cloini; a volume equal lo that ol' slore.s from two to four times the jJiV.o ol' mine. I have therefore but'ii forced to curry a slock of at least thrtc or four tiim-s lar«cr than .should be placed in a store the sr/e.of mine. We have needed this large stock. However, our stock has become SO large that it is absolutely impossible to display it properly. We carry so many, many items that people do not know aboui that proper display space becomes an absolute necessity. Since Christmas I have had two sales, each lasting two days. These sale.s were uni(|ue as arc ol my Kales, in that I advertised that all items in my slore selling for more limn fJOe would be sold at COST! Now ordinarily when a merchant advertises a .s ;l l'_> »| this kind (if any one ever did before) the public looks askance and lakes his promise of cost with a grain of salt, so to speak. However, I have ntver exaggerated in my advertising and the people have learned that WHEN I SAY AT COST, I MEAN AT COST! Therefore these four sales days were A KKM, SU'' CKRS! Someone asked me (lie other day if I was rnaUin,; any monoy at all on these sales. He then added ''Where's the joker, Harry?" My friend was grea:!y :uir|iri.sed when I replied, "Yes, there is a joker. I d,> make monev on these sale.s " HERE'S HOW: My ad states that all merchandise Sh'.UJNG KOlt MORE THAN 50e WILL liK S0i.11 AT COST. Now. more than half the items in mv store do sell for :>()c <,r less. Yes, there is the joker! Hut—how does it affect you? Suppose that you want a Fieldcrcst blanket, sav our I.CHiiliful "Mar Ray." This blanket is a bargain at its regular price of $0.-iO; however, yon can buy ii now at cost, or 8-1.71. You don't have to buy an item that sells for fjOc or less in order to'TItiy the blanket! Therefore my joker is no joker to you at all. Now suppose thai J'ou happen to remember that you nwi a l£5c package of your favorite rav.or blades. Well, you buy it and pay 2r«: for it. I've made a protil which J probably wouldn't have made had it not been for my sale, and I've reduced my stock at the same time. My joker still has not hurt you, has if.' You're still ahead on the blanket. You paid no more for the blades than son \\ould hjjQ, yl.sL^j^i^.iand su»'ho\v you'd rathei Inn *llnrm_.fnJ>ti rn0"because I ve sold you a blanket it cdp,—^iri'itern Hhicji £pir, probably can't buy eKeulieVj.£3^Jlft\ ffitfe^iirt cfiitninly not at cost. Now that dial's off my mind and' that I've "come clean" and confessed, here's what, I propose lo do- I STILL NEED TO REDUCE MY STOCK! FO.R THE VERY LAST TIME HERE IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY! Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday of next week, from Wednesday (tomorrow) throuj.h Monday of next week, I promise that yon can purchase any item in my store or as many of them as you wish (selling for more than 50c). AT ABSOLUTE COST! Now, what are you going to do about it? Arc von smart? Prices are going up! Not down! We will not repeat this offer. In order to reduce our stock we give you this last opportunity. I HAVE THE MERCHANDISE Yon can save many dollars if you're smart. Whether it's a blanket or a dozen blankets, we have 'em. If it's a towel or a do/.on, we have 'em. If it's a medium or large tricycle, we have 'em. If it's a large wagon for Ihe kid, we have 'em. Can yon buy slips and gowns elsewhere? Wo have 'em (oversize too) and you can buy them at cost tjjcse four days. If it's a Kieldcrest, a Jarnuird, or a Chenille Spread we have 'em—at cost! If it's a chenille robe or a man's wool bath robe, we have 'em. If it's work clothing we have (we think) the,selective ami finest quaHty in town—at cost! Boys' clothes, how about his shirt:i, sweaters, pants, polo shirts, aocks, etc? We have all this. Men's winter or summer underwear, Men's socks, ties, perhaps a good billfold, any kind of shaving needs, a leather fitted toilet case, a sweater, yes we have all these and many more. Shelf hardware, staple drugs, kitchen utensils and small kitchen implements, even (hn very latest wall can-opener which retails ftt only SI.19 but which you can buy for 8;)c. Yes we have all this. Dishes of all kinds. Stationery, 'office or school supplies, notions, standard toiletries and cosmetics, toys, in fact if (here is any thing for tht home wo know (hat you are more likely to find i 1 . here, from piece goods to rubber overshoes, than at any other one store in Blvtheville. We want >'ou (o take full advantage of these LAST four days and lo save jusl as much money as you possibly can. Km- Ihis reason we arc extending you (he privilege of using our easy lay-away plan even (hiring these four days when we are selling at cos!. So if you need (he merchandise and arc not read/ to buy now, go ahead, ]>uy everything you need—at cosl —pay one dollar on every five dollars worth purchased. Pay all you can each payday and you ioo can SAVE! SAVE! SAVE! HARRY FRITZIUS Your Fieldcrest Merchant On West Main Across From Rico-Stix
