SEARS IS DETERMINED
TO COMPLY FULLY
WITH THE PRESIDENT'S
OF AUGUST 15, 1971
Although this Christmas catalog had been printed
prior to the President's Order, the prices of most
items in this book are at or below the ceiling
price permitted by that Order.
However, some items are priced to include an
upward adjustment that would have been normal
in order to reflect increased costs. On all such
items, we assure you that you will pay no more
than the price permitted by the Order; we will
automatically refund any difference to you, or
will charge your account the lower price.
This is our policy. You can count on Sears during
this period just as our customers have been able
to do throughout our 85-year history.
