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.

I was only in second grade but remember this. I probably heard about this in CCD since I was in second grade.

Idk... if these ended up on TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes, they'd get on but bleeped.

Doubtful Dick Clark and Ed McMahon could have used those MASH bloopers.

@ChrisBCritter- It has been in color the film lol.


Comment posted in WBBM Channel 2 - Seal of Good Practice, SSB, & Station Sign-Off (1981) by Detroit4Chicago on Saturday, March 21st, 2015 at 9:27pm CT

@ER3017- Thanks for the info from the schedule. With a two-hour feature (The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell) including a few commercial spots in between, it does take up a lot of time to force a station like WBBM-TV to cancel the sermonette.

CBS O&O's were notorious for their Late Show lineups circa 1979-1980 IMHO. In places like NYC, Philly and Chicago, it was most common. But in LA, it was variable and in St. Louis, schedules were "normal:" between 1 and 3 in the morning, especially on Sundays.

I just heard a song by Jane Olivor on MeTv radio!

Interesting - I remember once seeing The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell aired in black and white around this date. Next time I saw it I was surprised to see it was in color! Wonder how that happened?

@Detroit4Chicago- It is the second showing of "The Late Show"; they were airing "The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell" at 3:30am and probably signed off at about 5:30am. Here's the schedule.

I just Googled sotz for the hell of it, Fuzzy. I came across this and MAYBE this had something to do with it perhaps...

Just for the record, I'm not a huge drinker of coffee but my girlfriend is. I've learned to make a mean cup of coffee and a mean whiskey cocktail. BOTH will put hair on your boo boo. :-D
