The first one was so good, they opted to hold a second one.
From the May 4, 1922 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:
Stage Another Bargain Day.
The local merchants will stage another bargain day on Wednesday of next week. In a full page advertisement elsewhere in this issue of the News may be found the offerings of the various stores; and it will pay the readers of the News to look them over very carefully, as there are some very unusual bargains offered.
On Wednesday, April 12, the first bargain day was held; and although conditions were not very favorable at that time, it succeeded so well that it was immediately decided that there should be another one staged in the near future.
The merchants are prepared for a heavy run of business next Wednesday, and it is certain that those who take advantage of this event will make a very substantial saving on goods that they are needing just at this time.
