01261-M1192ELEE- Catalogue- NORTH MEMPHIS COAL AND HARDWARE CO.,  Memphis, TN. Sept 1931. "Monthly Bulletin: An Interesting Message From A Reliable Coal & Hardware Merchant." This was the introductory issue from this merchant. Independent merchants were encouraged to do these "store papers" as they were called, as a way to increase contact with their customer base. These efforts came about as an answer to the mail order houses and the hated (by the merchants) mail order catalogue. Even before the turn of the century, "wide awake" merchants were actively publishing these little papers. This one is unique for several reasons and is especially attractive, with two-color accents throughout.  It features back-to-school items, building materials, house wares, stove supplies, tin goods, etc. Their slogan is typical of the times in which it was written: "We're in a Black Business, But We Treat You White."  8-1/2" x 11" x 8pp self-mailer on coated stock paper. Very good condition.  $38.00
