Grocers Trying to Find a Way to Compete With Them.

Duluth, Minn., Special. - At the state convention of the grocers J. H. Tenvoorde of St. Paul, read a paper on "The Department Store How To Compete With It." He admitted that he could hardly say how it is to be done. Advertising he considered the best way in which to compete. A long discussion followed, and it was resolved to stand by the wholesalers who will stand by the retailers. P. J. McGaughey of Minneapolis talked on "Buy Cheap and Sell Cheap." It was an argument in favor of co-operation and was one of the best addresses that has been delivered. A letter was received from the Minnesota Pharmaceutical association pledging its co-operation in the efforts being made to do away with the department store.
