•MMM Welcome We have moved to our new location first door east of Goeders store. We are extending a hearty welcome to our friends and customers to call and see us. You will be mighty welcome and the bargains we are offering at the new stand will be welcomed by everyone that wants to save money. Never before have we been able to gather up such outstanding values. Wholesale houses seemingly have vied with each other to furnish us goods at prices that would bring people to the new location. We had our removal sale. Others are running sales, but as far as prices on good standard goods are concerned you haven't seen anything yet. In the last 30 days I have picked up some of the best shoe buys I ever saw. Factories are anxious for trade and spot cash. Ready money talks louder than it ever did. We have some of the biggest bargains in shoes and slippers HOAV that AVC ever had to offer since we came to Kossuth county. These are all new up-to-date standard shoes and slippers. Our trade demands good shoes, but this fall they want them for the least possible amount of money.
