1982 Montgomery Ward Day After Thanksgiving Commercial (not mine)

Filed under: Christmas,commercials,dead chains — Anita @ 9:14 pm

Since its usually just me, mom and dad on Thanksgiving, one of our highlights is to look at the salespapers Thanksgiving morning.

It’s hard to believe that back in the day after Thanksgiving sales started at 8 a.m.. We’re so used to them starting at like, six a.m. or some cases now midnight or four a.m.

Belk (Williamsburg, VA @ Windsormeade Marketplace)

I know, that’s a tiny sign. I assume this is due to Williamsburg’s strict zoning laws.

I think this Belk opened in late 2006. I didn’t go in today. Next time I will.

Freedom Plaza, Suffolk

Saw this at work Thursday and DIED laughing (to myself).

“A Center Dedicated to our Fallen Heroes”??

I’m all for memorials, but a shopping center?

Freedom Plaza is dead, ripped apart by a tornado.

Stuckey's, Ivor, VA

Bad pic I know. I apparently lost iPhoto on my eMac when I reinstalled Tiger this Summer.

This is brand new in little ol Ivor. It’s almost like a truckstop.

This place had a huge selection of energy drinks, I bought a Rockstar Pomegranate juiced up.

A few weeks ago, I posted about the KFC/Taco Bell that was torn down in Franklin. I found the bucket near my house in this carwash that is being built:
