Hi, and welcome back to Pleasant Family Shopping, where we’re all about the “two RM’s” – Retail Memories and Revenue Maximizing! Time for another look at good old Montgomery Ward!
You know, the crowd scene in that first photo reminds me of the scene that breaks out at my local Target whenever they introduce another one of their cool designer collections, like their great line-ups from Orla Keily and Alexander McQueen. As a matter of fact, I understand they are having an incredible sale now. You need to run over to Target and check it out, before a crowd like this forms!
The second photo shows Wards’ popular Airline radio and television department. Can’t you just picture that great, funky looking showroom full of monster plasma TV’s, like the ones Best Buy has at super-hot prices right now? (I don’t think they have any in blond wood cabinets, though!) I mean, we’re all retro fans here, aren’t we? What would be better than watching our classic TV favorites, like “Leave it to Beaver” or “Father Knows Best” stretched out on a 16:9 widescreen? (Wow, I thought Eddie Haskell was skinnier than that!)
When I think about Montgomery Ward, I can’t help but think they’d still be around if they had only put a Starbucks in each one of their stores. Speaking of Starbucks, have you tried their new Cinnamon Dolce Latte with Sugar-Free Syrup? They’re absolutely awesome! In fact, why not run over to your local “sbux” and try one right now? This website will waiting for you when you get back! Or better yet, bring your Dell laptop (or whatever kind you happen to have) over there, and enjoy the great AT&T wi-fi service! Yes, you can have it all!
Well, that’s it for now. See you again soon for more memories and even more Great Deals!
