Greatest Trade Event In The
History Os This County To
Be Held Here In Near Future
MERCHANTS OF CITY
Trade Week Will Be Observ
ed Here May 24 to June
2.—-Merchants Will Offer
Many Fine Bargains.
TWO AUTOMOBILES TO
BE GIVEN AS PRIZES
And Plans As Outlined and
Endorsed by Merchants In
dicate Biggest Trade Event
in City’s History.
The greatest trade event in the his
tory of Cabarrus County will lie stag
ed in Concord from May 24th to June
2nd. inclusive. The mammoth event
will he staged under the direction of
the Concord Merchants’ Association,
whose iuem!>ers Monday night at an en
thusiastic meeting held at the Y voted
with great enthusiasm to hold a Trade
Week during those dates and to make
the event the biggest in the history of
the county. The members not only de
cided to observe Trade Week; they
went further and liberally subscrib
ed to the fund that is necessary to
stage the event.
In addition to the great bargnins
that will be offered in tlte various
stores here during the week, the Mer
chants' Association will give away two
autos. The members present at the
meeting Monday night voted to give]
two automobiles rather than one auto|
and a number of smaller prizes. The
cars will be purchased in the near fu-!
tnre, and will be given to those ]>er-|
sons who hold the lucky tickets, the;

through Sntnrdny, June 2nd. These
dates were selected, it was pointed
out. so that tlte event would run
through two Saturdays, thus affording
everyone a chance to take advantage
of the bargains to be offered.
Mr. ,1. EJ Davis, who was appoint
ed chairman -of the Advertising Com
mittee, put the proposition l>efore the
association members. It is all right
to talk about "trading at home,” he
stated, but merchants must do more
than talk. “We must make our stores
and our merchandise attractive to the
people,” he stated. "It is not enough
for us to sit here with our hands fold- 1
ed and talk about It lieing the duty of
the people to trade at home. We must
show them that we can give them ev
erything they need.
“We must make our stores attract
ive, must carry a good stock of goods,
must offer prices as low as possible
and extend a courteous service. If
we will give these things instead of
advice about not buying from the mail
order houses we will prosper mor.e.”
Mr. Davis also stated that he
thought the event should ’be made the
biggest in the history of North Caro
lina. The bigger the bargains and the
more costly the prizes the more people
the event will attract, he stated.
This opinion was hacked by Mr. J.
O. Parks, head of the Parks-Belk Com
lmriy here and a numlier of other Belk
stores. Advertising has always paid
with him, he stated, and he has no
ticed tjiat the bigger the proposition
the more goods he sells and the more
money he makes. “Get into this thing
with lots of enthusiasm,”, he advised,
“and It will he the biggest thing we
have ever done. It will not only be a
great thing for the merchants, but
hundreds of bargains will be offered,
and in addition to the two autos to be
given away the shoppers will gain by
