ALGON A LIQUOR STO PUTS PEP Other Stores in State In crease Efforts in Competition with Local Salesmen's Rec6rds With but two esiceptforts .since Dec. 15, 1941, the iboys in Algoim'fi liquor store have topped all of the other 177 stores in the state in stamps and bond sales during the year. Month after month the local .store has so-far out-ranked other •Stores that finally It became so noticeable that store managers In ''Other cities and towns began to do something about it. And, meanwhile, this growing competition within the state's stores has; increased the sales of stamps and bonds from a $80,000 total in January to $326,478 in October. This spletidld increase in sales cart be credited definitely to the month-1 ly goals reached by the Algona 11- • quor store during that t'-me. Davenport High for Month During October the Davenport store topped all others in the stal c with a total of $36,320. Burlington -was second with $23,672 and Clinton third with $122,002, Several other " towns which in the past had reached $5,000 or $6,000 put on extra drives in October and Algona, with a total of $11,376, was e.'ghth for the month. However, it may be readily seen; that the extra efforts put on the stores weiy; the result pf .extra work by the stares Wishing to top Algona. ' '' , Elnta Ix>w for Month The town of Blma, population 790, In Howard county was low.for the ''month with total sales of stamps at ' $8.50.: This means that the people * of that community contributed about 1%* per capita in stamp purchases through the store. The town of Sheldon, population 3,768, spent about 2'Ac per capita for stamps and bonds In that store w.'.th a total for the month of $83.20. With a pop-i ulation of 4,954' every man, woman and child in Algona spent $2.27 for stamps and bonds were they purchased through the local store. Nine Stores Over $10.000' Of the 177 stores in the state nine of them sold over $10,000 worth of stamps and bonds, 13 were over the $3,000 mark, 11 over $2,000, 01 over $1,000, 21 over $500, : 67 between $100 and $500 and 25 of them'sold less than $100 worth.'-The'increase . for the month over September was nearly, $7,000. And to the Algona liquor store personnel must be'given credit for the high boost in sales Snathe past eight months. A letter from 4 the Iowa -Liquor Commission to this newspaper gives the Algona store credit.for the increase in efforts of other stores to reach higher .bond and stamp sales and high' ly commends Mr. Brundage and his clerks for their fine work in this direction.
