This will enable us to bring to you better hardware at much lower prices than would be the case if we were doing a credit business. „ • Credit losses must be absorbed in the prices that have been charged by stores doing a credit business. Hence you, as a customer, have had sometimes to help Cpay the loss because someone did not pay, Now this is no longer the case because you and ev* eryohe else will be paying cash. We do not need the same margin of gross profit to meet our overhead costs because We eliminated credit .losses, bookwork, collection expense, and similar items from the overhead, Consequently we are therefore reducing our mark' up, and this reflects to your benefit* , x We sincerely hope to continue to enjoy your patronage, and on our part we will do everything in our power to have items in stock ready for you as far as possible under war conditions, • ' , Kohlhaas Hardware i V •^ Formerly Kohlhsat & Mr*.
