Out of the Ordinary We Know
To turn your Aurora over to read an advertisement, but then, our service in merchandise is out of the ordinary. That's why the student body of North Manchester College like to make this store their home store. They have, as good students should, learned early in their course that this store of quality merchandise and one price to all, offers just a little more in honest-to-goodness good merchandise for the money they spend. It's the store with a reputation based on the square deal. Everything to eat or wear. A full line of groceries, dry goods, ladies' and men's wear.
We invite your patronage.
