A Double Dose I bought the Family Shoe Store at Storm Lalce, Iowa. I am shipping the stock home to Algona. The reason I bought it was because I got it so cheap I could not pass the deal up. The reason I am going to sell it in my own store is, it is all Peters shoes and all houfjht \vitilrin a year. The Family Shoe Store was started with a new stock of Peters shoes and has not run a year. Men's, women's, and children's shoes and slippers, all new and up to date, not an old pair in Dhe lot. They are the same lines that I buy from Peters Shoe Co. Mostly staple standard shoes, and every pair guaranteed solid leather. Before I bought this stock I hail too many s'hoes and slippers on 'hand. I 1)OUR11H heavy for spring, for I feared tlliat shoes would advance in price. With the Storm Lake stock crowded in on top of my other stuck makes a load that is too iheavy to carry. So 1 am calling an S-DAY REDUCTION SALE beginning Friday, April 20th, and ending Saturday night, April 28. The Storm Lake shoes will be sold as I bought them, at a big discount, 'but as I am overloaded on everything I am going to make this a store-wide sale. Stock must be reduced to normal. Tihere will be bargains for everybody in all lines. When. I say sale I mean sale. We have the goods and plenty of them. You get quality, you get now shoes, oxfords, ties, and pumps, and you get them at prices that you can afford to pay.
