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.

Just watched this commercial here for the first time, and remembered it instantly from when it originally aired. A pleasant, simple, straightforward and effective message expressed without yelling, bombast or any people acting like idiots. Those were the days.
A portion of this clip was featured in a recent episode of AMC's The Making of the Mob: Chicago.
The episode was the Second Season finale, entitled "Last Man Standing" and premiered on August 29th 2016. After notorious mobster Sam Giancana meets his end, one of the characters watches the evening news for updates. See a screen shot from this episode as well as our end credit here.
The 1977 version of Hunter first aired on CBS on Friday, February 18, 1977 during the midseason until its cancellation three months later on May 27th with only 9 shows aired. The last 4 of them didn't air nor did the 1976 series pilot.
The footage of the Lobster ride in this ad is actually from the Marriott's Great America in Santa Clara, CA and not the one in Gurnee. The giveaway is that California's Lobster had four cars per arm while Gurnee's has five. Gurnee's Lobster was renamed East River Crawler but in 2017 will revert to the Lobster name and be relocated to where the Orbit was located. Orbit is being removed.
