I've been interested in old discount stores for awhile, so here's a thread for them. Share pictures, stories, videos, whatever.
I'm particularly interested in Gibson's Discount Centers, a large chain from the 60's/70's which collapsed in the 80's. (A few stores lasted till 2002; I think one or two franchises are still open in Texas.) I've tried to find some of their old TV commercials, but haven't been able to so far. Does anyone have any? I think they were already declining in the early 70's, so they might've predated home video.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
