We have no obsolete styled Furniture to dispose of because our volume of business in the past year has enabled us to turn our stock many, many times, and we do not have a single Suite on our floors that has been in our stock over 90 days, and the biggest part of our stock has been placed on our floors since January 1. We do not believe in telling our patrons that they are buying a Suite that is actually worth $165.00 now going at $67.50 if it is worth $67.50 on the present market—that is all it is worth.
