Because the price ticket on a suit or overcoat is $25.00, that does not make the article worth $25.00. You may find the same quality for a lot less money. Some stores are run on long mark up while others play for volume, quick sales and small profits. The fellow that is making $8.00 to $10.00 on a garmet will treat you very nice, he will beg you to buy It, for he is making big money. On the other hand the fellow that is making only $1.50 will get you the pattern you want and fit you with the right size; then he wants you to say yes or no for he has to sell four or five coats while the high power man Is selling one. • A coat or clonk marked $20.00 is not worth any mors than the same article marked $9.98. The lower prices on standard rjoods Is what brings trade to Algo'ha. I know an article sold In Algona at $1.25. Other towns have retail stores selling the same filing at 89c. This does not help the rest of us. I am Interested in Algona. I have property here nr.~ want to see it made Into the leading trade center In this part of tho state. Standard, up-to-date goods at low prices will do it. Ballyhoo and blarney do not make repeat customers. Real bargains are what bring them back. We have customers from a distance who buy $20.00 to $40.00 bills at this time of year. Many of them load up and ro right home. This !s not what I like, I want them to go out around town and spend as much more. The public is hungry for bargains. Let'Us feed them what they want and make Algona a bigger, better town. No town, no store undersells Neville's. I see to that 365 days every year.
