Notice To Our Customers
WERE GIVING UP STAMPS—EFFECTIVE SAT
URDAY NIGHT, APRIL 1, 1961—AND PASSING
THE SAVINGS ON TO OUR CUSTOMERS IN
LOWER EVERY-DAY FOOD PRICES.
Here’s How Phthisic’s Does It!
The answer is simple! We’re in business to make
money ... and WE MAKE MONEY WHEN WE
LOWER OUR PRICES! Does that sound strange? It
would seem so. You’d think we’d made more money
by raising prices—but the exact opposite is true at
Here’s why. Volume is the reason and the key . . .
here’s how it works. Our per cent of net profit from
each dollar sale is the same, regardless of the volume.
So, as you can see—if our volume goes up, then our in
come goes up, too! That’s why we lower prices .. . and
attract more customers. More customers mean greater
volume . . . BUT . . . (and this is the IMPORTANT
FACT) . . . the higher our volume, the lower our per cent
of operating cost! This happy condition comes about
because, generally speaking, the higher volume of busi
ness can be handled largely on the same fixed operating
Therefore, in comparison and percentage—our costs
go down in direct proportion to our increased sales!
AND HERE’S WHERE YOU COME IN! We take our
savings in operating costs and pass it on to you in the
form of lower prices . . . while we maintain our same
ratio of net profit on the new greater total dollar sales!
It’s a beautiful example of teamwork because
EVERYBODY benefits! YOU SAVE MORE BE
CAI SE WE MAKE MORE! The more groceries we
sell—the more money we make —and the more money
you SAVE! Sort of like a snowball rolling down hill .. .
the faster it rolls, the bigger it gets, and the harder it is
to stop ... but nobody wants to stop it! Our volume of
business has grown consistently . . . our cost of opera
tion has correspondingly dropped—and more and more
customers are saving more and more money EVERY
DAY OF THE WEEK!
EVERY DAY lower prices are available on a con
sistent basis . . . week-in and week-out. They will re
main lower than competition constantly ... the only
time Phthisic’s will change a price is when the cost of
products to Phthisic’s goes up or down. Smart house
wives KNOW THAT TOTAL SAVINGS COUNT! And
smart housewives have found they can shop Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday and get the same unmatched
values as on the week-ends . . . with less effort, less
shopping time and with no parking worries.
This, then, is Phthisic’s policy . . . to achieve great
er volume—bring about lower operating costs—and pass
the savings to you!
The Top Value Enterprises, Inc., will continue to re
deem your stamp books any time you wish.
