BANCROFT NEWS FENTON SCHOOL YEAR ENDED LAST FRIDAY; MANY AWARDS WERE MADE Entertainment Just have been reading an ad where they Invited the public in to examine, try on and be told what to wear during the social season. That store must be getting a mighty long profit if they can afford to entertain the public free of charge. I have a lot of sympathy for the pocket books that are opened in that store. Neville's store is opened to sell goods, we hire clerks to sell goods. We have customers that buy goods. That is what we run a store for. We leave Mr. Rice to provide the entertainment. We like to have people come in, make themselves at home, use the rest room and enjoy visiting with their neighbors. But the minute they start trading we want them to drive up on the bit and show a buying disposition. That takes a clerk's time and costs money. We get rid of the "lookers around" by pricing the goods so low that they forget their bad habits and go to buying. We make buyers out of lookers. Efficiency is our watchword. We merchandise along *th« line* of least resistance with the least expense possible. No missionary work for some factory that wants to put their line across. We give people what they want when they want It and at prices cheaper than they can buy the Mine goods any where else. No green tags, red tags or decoys of any kind used. Just good standard merchandise. The same well known lines that are handled by the best stores all over the state. You get tl.e same goods but less service and less price when you trade at Neville's. Chain store or any other competition does not bother us. In fact I worked hard to get Montgomery Ward located in the Christensen building. I figured they would help bring people to Algona.
