Tuesday when we put '20,000 pieces of china on sale, we were literally
swept off our feet. The thousands that jammed our store made it humanly
impossible for us to render the usual high type service for which this
store is known. We served everyone as quickly and as efficiently as
possible. We met the situation to the best of our ability. And we sincerely
appreciate your cooperation and neighborly spirit in working with us
while our store was packed with customers. Again, thank you.
