FOR CARPETING-lt's the full view for carpeting ot the'new Simpsons-Sears store, ot Centre Village opening Thursday. New Drug Store For Mall Three score years ago, when Charles Lindbergh was seven years old and George the Fifth was king of England, a young pharmacy clerk declared his independence by opening his own drug store at the comer of Denman and Nelson in Van- couver's fashionable West End. Today, with 80 stores in Brit- ish Columbia and seven more in Alberta, Cunningham Drug Stores Ltd., is first in the west and second only in the east. On Thursday Cuningham's will open still another of its big, bright, modern stores in the new Centre Village Mall in Lethbridge. The Cunningham drug store in Centre Village has been specially designed to provide the maximim in customer con- venience and efficiency. The Credit jewellers In Centre Village Spacious surroundings, rich rosewood display fixtures and soft green carpeting set off the many attractive guts and je- wellery items in Peoples_ Credit Jewellers' iiew store in the Cen- tre Village Mall. Roy Utigard, manager of Peoples Credit Jewellers in Lethbridge for the past eight years, will be on hand to greet customers and visitors to the new store when it opens this Thursday. He will be assisted by a staff of 12. The Centre Village store will have all new stock when it opens, Mr. Utigrad states. The former store on 6th Street South has been closed and all old merchandise has been dis- posed of. The new Lethbridge store will be the 85th unit of the na- tion-wide organization of Peo- ples Credit Jewellers and will mark another forward step for a company which has had a most remarkable growth rec- ord. In 1919, Frank Gerstein, an energetic young watchmaker, opened what was to say the least a "hole-in-the-wall" shop 'at Toronto. He had bor- rowed capital, a 20-by-21 foot shop over a lunch counter, few watches and an odd assort- ment of silverware need less to say, not much in tang ible assests. But he had several other as sets. One was faith faith in himself and faith in the futun of Canada but most impor tant of all trust in his fellow Canadians. Frank Gerstein believed tha people are basically honest and it was on this foundation Peoples Credit Jewellers was built. Peoples Credit Jewellers was the first retailer in lo extend credit. In the past 50 years more han Canadians have urchased from Peoples Credi ewellers. That the policy o elling on credit is accepted by ie company's customers is een by the fact that over 75 >er cent of Peoples Credit Je- fellers sales are credit. The policy of the founder elling only one quality of dia monds Certified Perfect s still being followed. This po' cy has led lo the company re- ceiving acclaim from the dk mond industry with award from the City of Amsterdam and the Guild of American Dia mond Cutters in New York. Today the company sell more diamonds and watc'he than any other jeweller in Can ada. At the present time growth of the company is bein guided by the founder's tw sons, Bertrand Gerstein, wh succeeded his father as pres dent and who is now chairma of the board, and Marvin Gsr stein, who recently succeeds to the presidency. A third generation of Ger steins is new represented i the business with the develoi ment of Bertrand's son Irvii Russell Gerstein as executi vice-pr.esident. Peoples Credit Jewellers o, cupies a prominent corner 1 cation on the main mall of tl Centre Village and reflects th dynamic new image of Peopl Credit Jewellers in its imagin live design and decor.
