I It Always Happens I notice the least profit I mark on an article the faster It sells. We buy goods to sell them. If they sell in volume, no matter how small the profit, they are making us some money. If they do not sell, they are not making us any profit, A nice shipment of men's calfskin oxfords arrives. They are Goodyear welts and the latest styles. Mark them to sell at $2.48 and they go to selling at once. One customer tells another and soon they are all sold. Mark the same shoes J3.00 a pair and you sell a few pair and the sale of them slows up. Mark them $3.80 a pair and they simply sit on the shelf. Right now we are selling men's genuine calfskin oxfords at $2.48. They are late styles, arch grip Goodyear welU, sizes 8 to 12 and widths A. B. C. and D. You bet your boots they are celling. One pair sells another. We do not have to use any sales talk. AH we do is fit their feet and then listen to the cash register ring. A big shipment of ladies' slippers arrived this morning. They are high ties and gore pumps. They are just beautiful and fit like a million dollars. Most merchants would mark them at J3.00 to $3.50 but our way is to mark them at $1.98. We do not have to sell them, the girls and women buy them. They take them away from us, all we have to do is find the size. The ladles know values and they love a shoe that fits. The boys' Sky Rider oxfords that we sell for $8.23 Is being retailed In a neighboring town at $3.25. There is hardly a a day passes that we do not sell shoes to people from Mason City. Fort Dodge, Fairmont and sometimes Spencer people. Lower prices on the same shoes appeal to their pocketbooks. They trade where they get the most for their dollar. When you buy a pair of our $2.98 shoes, we make 35c and you save $1.02. Then we are both happy.
