Horrible fashions in the 80's.

Horrible?! Hey, the 80s had some super rad fashions back then.

We thought we looked good...

I remember the Zayre in Richton Park well as my Mom would often shop there and I'd tag along and play the "Donkey Kong" machine. Right next door was the old A&P and right across the street was Eagle. All three are gone now and I'm wondering if they ever got around to filling those vacancies. They sat empty for years

Galaga, I remember that Zayre's too! I haven't driven by in a few months but I think it's something else now.

Looks like Ally Sheedy in the beginning, but I believe she would have been much younger than that in 1980.

You know Stevie, you might just be right. I missed the possible resemblance the first time I watched this commercial. All Sheedy was born in June of 1962 making her 18 when this came out. The woman in this commercial could easily be 18. Maybe it's her and you're the first to notice! ;-D

Nah, it's not her. Look at her teeth close-up when she smiles. Also, her voice is different.

Yeah. You're right Fuzzy. She's a dead ringer though.

I always wanted to go to Zayre back then because I LOVED their commercials, but my folks just wouldn't shop there. Why I never knew...

Maybe your parents felt about Zayre what people like my girlfriend's father feel about Wal Mart. They think of them as the devil and stay far away.

I remember the Zayre store in Waukegan where I grew up. They even had a gas station in the parking lot. Used to go there and buy baseball cards. Bought my mom a Wham! album from there too!

Buying baseball cards...now there is nostalgia right there...I know you can still find them but they arent as readily available as they used to be....I remember going to the store and buying baseball cards and I used to be obsessed with those Books that came with stickers and you had to put the stickers on the right page lol

I haven't seen a Zayre in 25 years at least. The Zayre in my hometown is now a Menard's.
Comment posted by OldTVNut on Monday, June 6th 2011 at 2:37pm.

I went to the Zayre at 3938 S. Harlem Avenue in Lyons a ton when I was a kid. How many days I spent in that toy aisle I'll never know!

According to Wikipedia, it sold all the stores in October 1988 to Ames. So it was an Ames store for a few years, then in the early-mid 90s, it became Phar-Mor for a bit. I think that location was then a gym for a while. Today, it's a Marshalls clothing store.

Nope, there was See No Evil, Hear No Evil from 1989 and Another You from 1991.

Stir Crazy was the last film to star Gene Wilder & Richard Pryor.


Comment posted in Grapes - The Natural Snack [Monster] (Commercial, 1979) by HUdson 3-2700 on Friday, December 19th, 2014 at 11:30pm CT

I think it shares a lot of the imagery with Alice in Wonderland: the way she's dressed reminds me of Tenniel's illustrations, and the monster resembles the caterpillar, though not smoking a hookah.


Comment posted in McDade's - "Your Christmas Store" (Commercial, 1979) by Smctopia on Friday, December 19th, 2014 at 11:26pm CT

I happened to drive past the post office tonight on the way to the racetrack and I had a vague memory of it when I went part. Thank you for confirming!


Comment posted in McDade's - "Your Christmas Store" (Commercial, 1979) by Phantom on Friday, December 19th, 2014 at 4:06pm CT

The McDade's in Palatine was at 1300 E. Northwest Highway. The Post Office is in that location now.


Comment posted in McDade's - "Your Christmas Store" (Commercial, 1979) by Smctopia on Thursday, December 18th, 2014 at 8:52pm CT

I know I went to the McDade's in Palatine but can anyone remember where it actually was located?


Comment posted in WLS Channel 7 - ABC Theatre - "A Time For Miracles" (Opening & Break, 1980) by FuzzyMemories on Thursday, December 18th, 2014 at 6:27pm CT

ID'ed the woman in the bumper promo at the beginning - Karen Kalish.

The guy at 1:27 looks as if he is trying to give The Most Interesting Man in the World a run for his money.


Comment posted in Mr. Coffee with Joe DiMaggio - "The Delicious Way to Say Merry Christmas" (Commercial, 1977) by T.K. on Thursday, December 18th, 2014 at 11:25am CT

I remember hearing somewhere that, after years of doing these commercials, DiMaggio was disenchanted by young people who wanted his autograph because he was "Mr. Coffee" and had no idea about his baseball career.


Comment posted in The Children's Photographer - "Portraits for Christmas" (Commercial, 1977) by T.K. on Thursday, December 18th, 2014 at 11:17am CT

Something seems misleading here... is it 37 cents for one 5x7 print, with a much greater sitting fee that we're not told about?

Or is this all to get Cheapskate Mom to come in for a big sales pitch in hopes that she'll put away her change purse and actually buy the deluxe package of 75 prints, with a pose in front of each background. With 5x7, 8x10, 3x5, 36x24x36... wait, maybe not that last one!

And if these are "portraits for Christmas," why are none of the backdrops holiday-themed?! I guess they bring those out for Easter...
