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.

What's that saying about bad things coming in threes? Sadat wound up becoming the third major world leader shot in 1981 (President Reagan and Pope John Paul II being the others).

Odd that they had Hal Linden bundled up for this, but he wasn't actually outside to demonstrate.

The announcer on that Sears spot sounds suspiciously like Val Bettin, best known to many here as WTTW's "The Storyteller", especially when he says, "twelve ninety-nine". Can anyone confirm that?

An Illinois Democrat opposed to the Feds? Huh?

POWWW! POWWW! POWWW! (obscenity) POWWW! (Lord's name in vain) POWWW! POWWW! WHY WON'T THIS THING WORK (more obscenities)...I know quite a few adults who would've made this game more entertaining on the air.

WGN's New York City sister station, WPIX Channel 11, had a famous variant of this Tv POWWW gimmick during this same period; their version was called Tv PIXxx. Unlike here, the various games were presided over by off-screen staff announcers Bill Biery and Ralph Lowenstein, with alternations among still slides, video CGI's, and the primitive computer games in place then.

Ralph Penza was mostly a fixture on New York City television. At the time of this aircheck, he'd left WCBS Channel 2 (where he'd been since the mid-'60's) for then-sister station WCAU the year before. He'd return to New York in 1980 for a long run at WNBC Channel 4 (of which WCAU is now a sister station) that lasted on and off to not long before his death in 2007. On YouTube is a brief clip of a Sunday newscast anchored by Penza on WCBS in early to mid-1976, just prior to his joining WCAU.

It was around this time that WCAU replaced their prior color cameras (apparently RCA TK-42) with the same Thomson TTV-1518's as in use at WBBM.

Funny they had Orlando wearing that Bulls jersey considering that Chicago had switched to the current design the previous season. Perhaps this was a rerun of a commercial earlier in Woolridge's career.

At 1:12 in this video, you see a technician slide away the chroma key wall. Compare that to WCAU, the CBS station in Philadelphia in 1977, they had it on a fly system. http://www.fuzzymemories.tv/index.php?c=4771 at 0:45.
