"There's not a merchant in the area," said Milton S. Frank, president of the Chamber of Commerce, "who hasn't made an all-out effort to bring his customers the finest values possible. ''They have worked for many weeks, seeking the best merchandise to be found, at the best possible price and have held it for this big Dollar Day presentation. "The Chamber of Commerce has had a large committee working with these merchants, .helping and planning. We challenge any section, anywhere, to equal the values which will be offered the public by the Greater Auburn Park businessmen." There are many items going on sale which will be almost unbelievably low in price and high in value. We sincerely believe this series of Dollar Days will be talked about for a long time to come and we may never be able to offer such sensational values again." E r f 71ST- MT.
