TheAlgona tipper Pea Moines, Algona, Iowa, May 20,1937 No-No-No Shoes will not be higher priced in Algona for the nest 30 days. It is true that wholesale prices are going up, but we now have two shoe stocks to sell at old prices. I bought the exclusive Family Shoe Store of Iva Henkel at Elmore, Minn. I shipped it here to Algona. This on top of my regular big shoe stock makes $17,000.00 worth of shoes to be sold at Neville's Shoe Store at old prices and less. The Elmore stock is all Peters Diamond brand shoes, 100% Peters and only run a short time. So you are sure of good shoes and new styleo. I bought the entire stock for cash. It. stands me 67e on the dollar of present wholesale prices. For a quick turnover I am offering these splendid shoes at wholesale prices for the next 30 days. Considering the present market this will be the greatest money-saving sale you ever attended in Algona. Think of It, you get new shoes, you get Peters good shoes at old prices which is cheaper than any merchant can buy them today at wholesale. This Is talking to you In real honest-to-goodness bargain language. It is your time to buy shoes. A word t« the wise is sufficient.
