BOTSFORD LUMBER CO. JIM POOL Algona Business Is Business ! The way of doing things has changed considerable in the last thirty years. Methods of doing business have changed like everything else. During boom times people paid $8.00, $10.00 and $12.00 a pair for ehoes. Later on when money became harder to get they dropped down to $5.00 and $6.00 a pair. The demand for thte class of shoe caused factories all over the United 'States to produce lines* of popular priced men's and women's shoes and oxfords to retail at $5.00 to $6.00 a pair. They make theee shoes to fit this price and ask the retailer to sell them at this price. The idea of the factory naming the price that his product should be retailed for te gradually losing prestige with the pogresslve merchant. Factory named price Is too high. It slows up salee. The progreselve merchant wants turn-over, he wants volume, he wants discounts. In order to get these things he has to .sell ,on a smaller margin of profit. Quick salee and small profits means success. Standard high prices means stagnation. Competition is the life of trade. If every merchant would sell goods at standard marked prices there would be no competition. People would have to pay the high price or go to the mail order house for their goods. The open door of the retail store is the natural outlet of all good merchandise. The only reason we • have.mail order houses today Is because the old-time merchant was trying to get too much profit. He got a •long profit, did a credit business, paid too much for his goods, and lost his discounts. Today we sell for caeh and ,buy for cash. We take every discount and get special deals for quantity buying. Goods are displayed,, every clerk is up on his toes, customers are taken care of and given a good honest deal. *• Shoes bought right and priced right are easy to sell. A clerk that can not sell a pair of shoee or slippers in ten to 15 minutes ds no good at' Neville's, and •the customer that can not buy a pair in that time Is not wanted at Neville's. I.believe in action, in .hon- eety, in being right, and doing right. AVe sell shoes to people that want shoes. No coaxing, no begging, no petting parties. Just good standard .shoes at reduced pi-ices. We are closing out all of'Freeman. Beddow's $5,00 and $6.00 oxfords at $3.95. Men, these $6;00 shock absorbers 'are a snap at $3.»5. They are yours at that price as long as they last. All new late styles. Men's Friendly Five Dollar oxfords go at the same price, $3.95. These are lines that we are not going to handle any more, so we are closing them out. First come, first served. Men's $3.50 Champion, made by .Freeman, and the men's $4.00 Ambassador go at $2.79 in this sale. Men'e Connolly brown kid oxfords, regular $5.00 value, now $2.98. The men'e oxfords that we used to sell at $2.59 and $2.7-5 now go at $1.98. Prices on men's oxfords have taken a dive from a depression spring board and they are going- to stay down all this month. We are making a.clean sweep of the men's oxfords. You.will find real bargains at Neville's Shoe Store . all this month. Jimmie Neville 'The Shoe Man" Algona, la.
