This old Venture commercial was profiled in the Yahoo! Remembering Retail group.

What tickles me is:

  • The dad and the son looking at the Kodak Disc Film and Cameras. Disc died in the very very very very very late 1980’s. My mom has a bag of disc film that was never developed.
  • How bright yet dark the store looks. Sure the walls are yellow and brown and the carpet is orange, but it looks like the store is just lit by flashlights in the clothing department
  • —-

    Venture died in 1998. {Wikipedia page}
