Good enough to eat!

Strollers along rue Sainte-Catherine can't pull their eyes away from the elegant windows of the large stores. For within those walls there is something for everyone: it is there that the housewife discovers the washing machine of her dreams, and the society lady runs her fingers over the smooth leather of a pair of gloves imported from France. There, too, the whole family exults in its purchase of a gramophone. Meanwhile, the mail order system enables even those who cannot actually visit the stores to purchase their products.
