Summer Sales Begin in Belfast

The Northern Whig, 27 June 1921

On 27 June, the front page of The Northern Whig featured a full-page advertisement for ‘The Bank Buildings Summer Sale’. It listed reductions in different departments across the store, including items such as ‘Jazz Coloured Wood Beads’, ‘Men’s All-Wool Super-Grade Grey Flannel Trousers’ and ‘Fancy Coloured Tea Aprons’. Many other shops also advertised summer sales on the paper’s inside pages, including Loane Bros., McCullagh & Co., and Robinson and Cleaver’s.
