Early Shopping, Folks
Plymouth Stores First

In Plymouth . . . Countless shoppers have
said so. Quality considered, you can get the
same article in Plymouth stores as cheap as
anywhere else. Furthermore,

To shop in Plymouth, where you get prompt
service, where you can get that check cashed
without delay . . . there’s little trouble about
traffic or danger from automobile accidents.
You can shop leisurely among home folks
