Retro Friday: L.A.'s Dearly Departed Retailers, Holiday Edition
"The Broadway *is* Southern California." From 1985, when The Broadway still existed... and it was still considered acceptable to tout the fact that you're selling fur.
In 1989, electronics store The Good Guys still existed... and apparently was still touting electric typewriters!
"It's the shirt all the boys are wearing!" Mervyn's, your Christmas value store.
Zody's -- Tapedeck not available at the Downtown Los Angeles store. Why?
From the 1970s, "The May Company has Christmas under wraps."
From 1998: Lucky means low prices, even during the holidays.
