Retro Retail Video - 1980 JCPenney Ad

1980 JCPenney TV Commercial

Here's a cool Spokane area JCPenney TV Commercial dating back to 1980. This one is for home audio components.

JCPenney history snippet via Wikipedia: J.C. Penney was founded in 1902 by James Cash Penney and William Henry McManus.

The original name for the store that started J.C. Penney in the dry goods business was the "Golden Rule Store", but was changed to J.C. Penney in 1913, when Penney accepted a majority ownership of the chain, William McManus still being a partner. The mother store is located in Kemmerer, Wyoming.

How odd... a local JC Penney commercial. I've never even heard of that jingle: "This is JC Penney" before. How bizarre! A parallel universe DID exist in the Eighties!

That jingle is odd to me. "This is JC Penney". Hmm...
