[(jjljft artKAN'MBBINS CO., jQAM, JOWA Our Businessmen At Home- HALL-STRAHORN HARDWARE BIG THINGS GOING ON NOW FOR ALGONA SHOPPERS There s pjlenly of activity (these days at Hall-Strahorn Hardware where double-barreled plans for some of Algona's best shopping are now nearing completion. The first part of owner Ken Strahorn's big fall program was completed this week with the opening in the store of a big, bright new toy display especially aimed at providing a gigantic selection of toys for early Christmas lay-aways. "You've got to see the toys ihis*year to believe them," says Tressa Sirahorn. Ken's wife and co-worker in the store. There's a fire engine with automatically flashing lights and self extending ladders — everything but the fire. It's Halji Strahorn's biggest and best toy year ever and now underway for everyone to cpm# and see. Just as spectacular as the new toy stock, but in a different fashion, will be the second part of the fall program at Hall-Strahorn. Sirahorn reveals next week's issue of the Upper Des Moines will have news of the biggest over-all values in fall buying ever held at Hall-Strahorn. Values in both price and quality are features customers have become used to at Hall-Strahorn since the store was established by Ken and Tressa in 1950. They feature top lines like RCA Whirlpool and Speed Queen automatic washers and dryers. Duo Therm and Super- flame oil heaters. Hot Point and RCA Whirlpool ranges and refrigerators and a complete stock of gifts and hardware. It's a store that fills the gap in everyone's shopping needs. The secret of this service to customers is that Ken Sirahorn is affiliated with several hundred dealers in fourteen states. They merge their buying to offer real values and Ken Sirahorn concludes that he intends to keep these values coming in the future. Algona Implement Co.
