you think the adults were bad...I grew up in the 80s and they dressed us kids way worse Comment posted by owenrock on Tuesday, April 27th 2010 at 7:55pm.
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 Comment posted by GalagaFleetCommander on Sunday, May 2nd 2010 at 11:32am.
Galaga, I remember that Zayre's too! I haven't driven by in a few months but I think it's something else now. Comment posted by LaPrincess on Sunday, May 2nd 2010 at 3:52pm.
Looks like Ally Sheedy in the beginning, but I believe she would have been much younger than that in 1980. Comment posted by Stevie TV on Wednesday, August 18th 2010 at 11:07am.
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 Comment posted by Pete on Wednesday, August 18th 2010 at 12:37pm.
Nah, it's not her. Look at her teeth close-up when she smiles. Also, her voice is different. Comment posted by FuzzyMemories on Wednesday, August 18th 2010 at 1:03pm.
Yeah. You're right Fuzzy. She's a dead ringer though. Comment posted by Pete on Wednesday, August 18th 2010 at 1:43pm.
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... Comment posted by 70s80s on Wednesday, August 18th 2010 at 5:35pm.
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. Comment posted by NuBnPrnc2k on Thursday, August 19th 2010 at 11:04am.
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! Comment posted by Lindy51 on Tuesday, January 18th 2011 at 9:29pm.
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 Comment posted by OwenRock on Tuesday, January 25th 2011 at 4:05am.
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. Comment posted by Lucien on Sunday, March 17th 2013 at 10:27pm.

I also have one on vinyl and one on 8-Track. This was the first Kenny Rogers album to be released by Liberty Records after Capitol-EMI Records took over United Artists Records. Now Capitol-EMI Records is part of the Universal Music Group (UMG).
Added ending voiceover info (hearing this at a remote FedEx Office location, the voice at the end clearly sounded like Mr. Reynolds, and besides, a YouTuber who saw this clip on that site, name of Ryan Zwolinski [to whom the hat tip], apprised us of this).
AMNews and SMC; One of Inn and Around's incarnations was also a club called the Grand Bandstand around 1984 or so. On Sunday evenings, it was open to all ages for a few hours (I'm guessing between 5-10pm) and didn't serve alcohol during that time frame. I went there a few times when I was a youngster.
Fuzzy: I wish you found another Kenny Rogers mail order record album TV commercial from the same early 1980's time for the 2 record set "Gold Dust and Gold Mine" featuring songs from the Kenny Rogers First Edition era.
