Harbour’s Grocery to Distribute Silver Through Flour Sales
From The Malakoff News
Friday, February 22, 1935
Harbour’s Grocery of Malakoff has accepted the plan of the Wichita Mill & Elevator Company of Wichita Falls, Texas, whereby complete sets of the famous Wm. Rogers & Son silverware may be distributed among customers through the sale of flour.
The flour by which these valuable free gifts may be obtained is a fancy flour and is a leading product of the Wichita Falls company. It is sold under the trade name of “PurAsnow.”
In order to secure this deal, it was necessary for the local grocer to purchase a full car load of this flour. The shipment has already been received fresh from the mill and is now available to customers of this store. Each sack contains a coupon, (the denominations of which vary with the size of the sack) that are good for the gifts of table silver and which are redeemable at Harbour’s Grocery.
On page five of this issue of the News will be found a large advertisement from Harbour’s outlining the free silver plan in full. In this advertisement will also be found a coupon that will prove of great value to all who are desirous of obtaining a set of this valuable silverware. The gift campaign starts at Harbour’s tomorrow and in the store will be seen a huge quantity of the gift flow and the silverware on display. Mr. O. L. McKnight a representative of the Wichita Mill & Elevator Company, will spend the day at the Harbour store and will be glad to explain the plan more fully, as well as the fine points of his product to those interested. The PurAsnow Flour will be sold exclusively by this store. Be sure to read Harbour’s advertisement on page five.
