Old National Discount Mall: “Something New” (circa 1992)

Does anyone remember going to the Old National Discount Mall down south of Atlanta? We had the Outlets LTD mall behind Town Center in Kennesaw when I was a kid (now part of KSU), so a trip to the other side of town was out of the question! I do remember these commercials in heavy rotation back in the day, though!

The Olive Garden: “Language” (circa 1988)

Remember when The Olive Garden was considered “fine dining”? I remember when you would only find their establishments in the “fanciest” retail areas like Sandy Springs and Gwinnett Place. Yes, I came from one of those families that got “dressed up” to go to Olive Garden! Did you?
