Advertisement: Carlberg's Appliances of Pasco and Kennewick are the first to bring the Meter Plan to the Tri-Cities. They have been allocated 75 Philco refrigerators to sell on the Meter Plan. No money down, just pay with what you save! You can pay for your Philco by dropping a quarter in the meter each day or you can put in as many as 23 quarters at time if you plan on being away from home.
