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.
