Here's a neat old commercial for Walgreens - the drug store we all grew up with. (even though Walgreens isn't strictly a "local" business, I'm putting it in that category for this one)

Check out that groovy green - what would you call it? Apothecary jar or something like that? It's on the counter during the part where people are picking up their prescriptions. I remember those. :-)

This aired on local Chicago TV on Monday, November 27th 1972

And to think they're now "on the corner of Happy and Healthy," plus having swallowed up Duane Reade - a store of which I saw here in Chicago when I passed through either en route to a film festival or coming from it, in 2002. Their logo, I've noticed, remains the same, though . . .

That brief shot from above of people entering the store was their store at Michigan and Chicago.
