Times are changing.
Years ago people would go
to the Stores to And some
thing they wanted to bay.
Today they get a catalogue
or a newspaper, look them
over and deride first what
they want. Next, they se
lect from this list that which
they can pay for. They al
ways note the price. If
they go to the Store and
can't find the items at close
to the prices they have they
don't buy. They then "or

is no doubt best. Only a
