For me, visions of the crumbling downtown Wilkes-Barre department store comes to mind. You know the one I’m talking about, the one with the uneven floors, missing ceiling tiles, 1970’s decor and the parking garage that reeks of vomit and urine. The merchandise contained within this palace is mainly seconds or items brought from other stores in order to dump it cheap onto the willing bargain hunters, blue hairs and those who just don’t care.
Wednesday night I was watching the news on WNEP-TV when a segment featuring the weatherman with the over-inflated ego, Joe Snedeker aired. Weatherman was at a store talking to shoppers about Christmas decorations and got into a conversation with a gentlemen about the fake holiday plant he was buying. The banter turned into a classic clip mentioning none other than today’s topic, Boscov’s, give it a look:
So, as you open your gifts on this Christmas day excited to see that you are the latest recipient of a leather jacket from Boscov’s, think about all the Naugahyde that were killed in order to keep you warm.
