Here's a Zayre price sticker found at my grandmother's house. I'm sure this is from sometime in the 1980's.

this is confusing me too. I don't know why anonymous posting is still coming through, even though we turned it off. I even posted a new rule about registering if you want to post.

here is the former zayre in pittsfield mass that I beleive opened 1960 on dalton ave not far from the old bradlees, kmart area in pittsfield. IT closed JAnuary 1989 when Ames closed 74 stores (including ones in South carolina) and this one and those 73 others never saw its chance in becoming Ames.

Amazing!!  I didn't knew there could be an original Zayre building like that still standing.  It appears to be like the Saco store.

Zayre saw Ames digest its acquisition of 42 King's stores and open eight new units in 1983. In 1984, Ames will open 12 and remodel 24 stores. Much of this activity is in existing Zayre markets.

I think there were quite a few in New York. I went to the one Many times in New Hartford, NY. Many of the Store Fixtures remained there through much of the Ames Years.
