Dude that's nothing. In the Mid-90's it usually cost $49.99 each for the WWF Pay Per Views on VHS



This is probably the best thing I have along with a red Ames cart with no wheels

I have little odds and ends. Several receipts from Ames, Bradlees, KB, Ann & Hope before it became the curtain and bath outlet,
http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v145/cormak/Defunct%20retail/   Just receipts for now, will ad more.  

Zayre price stickers on things, ames stickers on things,Bradlees, K-mart.  really old Ann & Hope bag. Ames "bargains by the bagful" canvas bag.

I'll have to see what else I have.

some of you have some really neat things. There should be a gallery for defunct retail items. An album for each store!
