Marietta Dodge: “VAN-O-MANIA ’89!” (circa 1989)

Levitz Furniture: “Biggest Sale” (circa 1988)

Oh, that music! So wonderfully 1980s! Such cheese! Did anyone ever shop at Levitz Furniture before their demise in the mid-2000s?

Hyatt Legal Services: “Advertising” (circa 1992)

We have Joel Hyatt’s word that advertising is a good idea that just keeps getting better. Legal services just like Abraham Lincoln!

Kessler’s 75th Anniversary Sale (circa 1989)

Kessler’s was one of those regional department stores that was huge for a long time, then died in the mid-1990s. I remember commercials for the place coming on all the time. I even lost my parents in the Cobb Centre location, but I don’t recall much about the place itself.

I suppose that by this time, advertising money was getting tight–hence the 5-second bumper spot.
