TAKING THE ATTITUDE OF "KKi I AND
LITTLE YOU" IS EXPENSIVE
Several days ago we were in one of the
leading stores of this county when a traveling
salesman who thought he. had the world by the
tail, displayed what h:. lwlieved was super sales,
man-ship, hut it was nothing more than rude
ness and a had business policy for him.
The buyer of the store was busy at the
time this super salesman got ready to display
his merchandise, but without waiting until the
merchant could complete his business with the
person whom he was serving. .Mi". Traveling

The merchant, being a man who gives

We looked on the entire atl'air with 'much
interest. Of course, it was just a small thing
in one sense of the word, but just the .-ame it
elearly shows that the salesman ''thought he
-hould have first preference with the merchant,
although someone else had lirt turn at the sam -prospect.
The expression on the face of the
merchant .prut rayed a feeling that even though'
the sale.-man had just the merchandise he might
need for his stock, he did not feel inclined to
deal with a "big I and Little everybody else
U'e do not know, but there i- doubt
in our mind that the man sold a dime's worth
to the merchant, and even if he did we are sure
of one thing, that he had to use every sales talk
and every method he knew of to complete the
sale, all because of his haste and inability to
recognize the right of the other fellow.
When men and women get to the place
where they feel that they should be given first
preference above all others, they should be
crowned not. 'with a gold crown, but with a

North Carolina, for the existing situation is giv
ing the state a "black' eye" which is being dis.

News relates an incident that goes to show how
the high tag is being viewed by outsiders. A

points out to The Times-News that decisions in
such cases frequently turn on comparatively
trivial matters. The stranger believes that one
coming from California and having to pay eight
times as much for automobile license here as
was paid in that state, gets a bad impression of

Which Is Your Favorite Store?
Among the places you patronize there is a certain
establishment for which you have a particular preference.
.Maybe you .have never stopped to analyze the reason, but
we'll hazard the guess that it is the personnel of that
store the warm, friendly, atmosphere that make you
feel at home as soon as you enter the door. Anyway,
we know that this is one of the most valuable assets a
business can have, because so many people have told us
it is one of the strongest ties that binds them to ALEX
ANDER'S. Eagerness to serve you is as outstanding: a feature
of this drug store as ability to serve you.
