People are buying and the stock is getting smaller. There is yet $12,000.00 worth of good, honest, standard goods to be sold by August 1st. Not a cheap out of date pair of shoes in the store. Not a thing bought or put into this stock since our closing out sale began. The same shoes, the same clothing and furnishings you have always bought from us and you are buying them at greatly reduced prices. It is a sure go this time. I am sure quitting for good. The bare walls by August 1st is our pledge to the people of this community. We are making prices that will accomplish this feat. No trouble to sell good standard goods at cut prices. A bargain is a good useful article at a reduced price and that is just what you are getting at Neville's closing out sale. All goods must be sold out by August 1st. The Woodward Co. will have a man here the last of July to make final arrangements about renting the building. The store will be empty and ready for remodeling at that time. The sooner you come, the better your chance to get just what you want. Prices will be reduced from day to day as the stock gets lower and broken in sizes. Now is your time. It is an opportunity to save money on things you need. I am bidding you good-bye August 1st.
