Yoti’l Have to Hurry
if you would keep up with the crowds that visit our store daily,
purchasing the many novelties we are offering to the trading public.
We haven’t time to mention the many articles we carry in stock,
neither do we quote prices in print. We make the price over oxxr
counters when the goods are shown. Here you have an opportunity
of comparing price with quality, and we state right here that if after
comparison you don’t find that we sell as cheap, or a little cheaper,
than the other fellow, we will not insist on selling you, for we want
every customer who visits our store to feel satisfied that they are
getting full value for every penny they spend with us—we had rather
miss a sale than to have a customer dissatisfied with a purchase.
Upon this theory we are building up a trade that we feel proud of,
and one which we flatter ourselves will stay with us.
We carry in stock almost everything that is usually found in
a General Store, but we would call attention especially to our stock
of SHOES and SLIPPERS. We have a line of custom work that
cannot be excelled in quality, style and finish, and the prices which
we are offering them will be of interest to you.
Wash goods is another special featxii’e with xxs for the summer
trade. It is worth yoxxr time to call and see the many new and novel
things we have in this department.
y We Give Green Trading Stamps.
Yours to serve,
Barnesvllle Mercantile Company.
Since moving into our new store our trade, though highly satisfactory before, has almost
doubled in volume. The people appreciate our efforts to provide them with everything they need,
and have learned to regard our place as their headquarters. The wants of the trade is our constant
study, and, without presumption, we claim that our years of experience and unlimited cash reserve
puts us well in the lead of all professing competitors. Having reaped the rewards of a mammoth
spring business, we will devote the next two months to
Warming Up Things in Warm Weather.
So, without regard to any certain day in the week, or any certain hour in the day, the process
of price-cutting will be continually going on. EVLRY DAT WILL BE BARGAIN DAY, and the
same prices will prevail for Ba.m. as for 6p. m. Our line of WHITE GOODS, EMBROIDERIES
and LACES has caught the trade. This stock is still unbroken, and no customer can afford to
overlook it. As to SHOES, remember we have the exclusive control of L. M. Reynolds men’s fine
shoes, and show Golding & Co’s, ladies and children’s fine shoes and slippers.
No use to say we keep everything. No use to say we discount the other man in price. No use
to promise more courteous attention. But suffice it to say our pleased customer is our best adver
tisement. Always come to see us. BARNESVILLE MERCANTILE CO.
