Trade With "Men You Know" Algona business men, sponsoring this event, say "trade with men you know." They are quite right. Thursday night's party for the general public is their gesture of friendship—they will sell no merchandise. Algona business firms are run by "men you know" who were here yesterday and will be here tomorrow and next year. When .you trade with Algona firms, you are trading with "men you know." You can rely on them, their merchandise and their prices. Just compare and you'll agree that America's finest goods are to be found in all Algona stores, at prices no more, and often less, than you have to pay in cities where overhead costs are much higher in all lines of business, and that cost has to be passed on to the customer.
