Ending 30* ft June, 1893. B. Hobbb takes the opportunity of tendering his sincere thanks to the Public for the liberal patronage accorded to him during the past half-year, the results being highly satisfactory, the month of Jane " beating the record," as far as returns go, for any previous month. This fact clearly proves that B. Hobbs' policy of buying in the Cheapest Market, whether from the Manufacturers in the Home Markets, ' or in an overstocked Colonial Market, and selling at "bedrock" prices over the counter, and to our Country Customers (whose orders are placed on exactly the same terms as cash buyers at the counter) has been fully appreciated by a discerning public. lam now more than ever satisfied that a good and legitimate business is to be done if conducted on the right lines, and for cash only, and to this endl intend to de vote my whole attention. We have now, in commencing the new half-year, a splendid lot of new purchases, in every-day goods, at prices that cannot fail to give satisfaction. I fully reaognise that in times like these, where there is so much illegitimate competition, that people will and most have god value for their money, and no effort on my part will be wanting to make it worth people's while to do business with me with confidence. The Publio are invited to inspect our various departments, and we shall have much pleasure in affording people the opportunity of seeing our stock, and comparing prioeß. Our stock of Men's and B&y y s Clothing is not only very large but all new, and now being sold at " fine prices " for cash. Patterns sent, poßt free, on application, and goods packed very securely in neat boxes for country customers, and the freight paid. M, HOBBS, 288 and 290, Queen-sireet, Auckland.
