In fact it is past the "want to" stage for I must sell that much in order to make room for the balance in my new location. In order to do'^this I am willing to sacrifice all profits. My loss is your gain. It is a good time to buy when the other fellow has to sell. Opportunity is luck and it is lucky for you that I have to sell my surplus stock of shoes at this time, just when every factory and merchant in the country is mark, ing them up. One thing sure if will be a long time before you can buy shoes and stockings as cheap as Neville is selling them during this Removal Sale. I must reduce this stock, for there is not room for all of it in my new location. It is a store-wide sale. I have turned the whole stock into a bargain carnival. Everything in the store is a bargain. Bargains from one end of the store to the other. Ask your neighbors, they will tell you the place to save money on shoes and stockings is at Nevilles. Our Removal Sale is in fuil bloom right now.
