Not a pair In that window worth less than $5.00. 400 pah- of ; them were Just received from Wobst Shoe Company of Milwaukee. They are brand new. Not a lot of old left-overs carried from last spring and summer business. You get good shoes, you get n fTfl S oi 0es ' styles that were never sn °wn before and you get them at Most stores want $1.00 to $3.00 profit on a pah- of slippers We are willing to sell any pair of shoes or slippers in the store if we can make 50 cents. Lots of them we sell for less profit than that. In fact, children's shoes only average us 27c to 29c a pair profit. Our aim Is to sell lots of them and make a little on each pair. No matter what price you mark on a pair of shoes unless you sell them you have not made anything. Buy and sell, buy and sell, is our motto. New, standard goods bought at right prices, sell themselves because people want them. If a clerk cannot sell a pair of shoes in five or ten minutes, I figure there is something wrong with the clerk or with the customer and I proceed to get rid of one or the other. The old fogey way of doing business is gone forever. Nowadays you have to buy them right and sell them right. The same slippers we are offer- Ing you at $2.98 were priced in a wholesale way last summer at $3.85. If I had bought them at that time and sold only a few pair of them I would be in the soup. Last week I bought the whole smear a.t a close out price of $2.50. Am selling them at $2.98 and making money. Standard nhoes, amall profits and sell lots of them is what makes the old grey mare trot.
