Retro Mall Video: Mays Department Store Commercial


Mays store TV commercial (1979)

Retro 1979 TV commercial for the popular New York-area Mays department store chain. From everything I've read, Mays sounds like it was a pretty cool department store with lots of colorful character. And I really dig their commercials and catchy jingle! "Every day's a sale day at Mays!"

Best of all, this ad features the ubiquitous Proctor-Silex coffee makers, which were so common in the kitchen back when I was growing up in the 1970s (along with the very groovy Poly*Perks, of course)!

WOW! I remember that commercial! That store in the commercial was in fishkill NY. I think the structure is still there, but abandoned.

MAYS had a few other stores, bu the one in the spot is definitely the one at Fishkill.

It was an anchor there, and they went out of business in 81-86 time-zone.

Yep it was a cool store too, unexplainable, but somehow cool. It had 2 floors, set up inside like a raised concourse, and you could see all around the place.

Ohhh for the years long gone! Thanks for the memorbielia!

Is this the same Mays that merged to be Robinsons-May and is now Macy's?

No, I think Mays was a completely different chain in New York only than the May Co. which I believe is what you are referring to.

I think that retro commercial are way cooler the most of the commercials right now. They could lie and it would have impact later on.
