Lowell Dorn, who lives in Abbotsford, announces the opening of his Coast to Coast store, located in the Buss building, next Saturday.

Although Mr. Dorn is the sole owner of the store, he will bring to the members of this community the highest quality products with the lower price advantages gained by the association of many hundreds of Coast to Coast stores through their central buying organization.

Mr. Dorn announced that his store will sell complete lines of hardware, automotive supplies, house wares, farm equipment, sporting goods, electrical supplies, home appliances and furniture. Many well known products will be featured, including Leonard refrigerators, Mastercraft and harvest brands of hardware, Safe Flex tires, Musicaire radios and may others.

The advantages to the people of Abbotsford in buying at a Coast to Coast store are many according to a representative of the central organization who is in town for the grand opening. He pointed out that local people would be dealing with one of their neighbors when they make a purchase, yet they would be making important saving on everything through the combined buying power of all the hundreds of Coast to Coast stores.

Mr. Dorn invites everyone to his grand opening on Saturday, where coffee and doughnuts will be served free. Look in this week’s issue of the Tribune for the Coast to Coast store’s grand opening announcement advertisement.
