J can say to you now with all sincerity that I am going out of business and that Neville's store will be completely closed out. Today I have cancelled all orders that were given for fall merchandise. So it is good-bye to future business. I am now convinced this stock can be closed out to the bare walls. It is a sure go this time, no it's or amis.
