I've heard Nieman-Marcus referred to as "Needless Markup"

Family Bargain Center=Family Garbage Center
Factory 2 U= Factory Rejects 2 U
Rite Aid=Wrong Aid
Shop Rite=Shop Wrong
Save Mart=Slave Mart
Roos/Atkins=Rude Catskins

Also, just about everyone I knew called the old Thrifty Drug chain "Thrifty's". Even though in all the advertising they always said "Thrifty", people called it "Thrifty's".


Woolworth was often slurred so it sounded like people were saying "Woolworse"...

Shoprite - Sh**Rite, probably because the one near me, the aisles are narrow and going thru the store you always get in the way of someone (especially if you let your cart just stay still!) Also every time I am there they always seem to be stocking yogurts! And I will want to get some, but again always stockin the yogurts.
Acme - The ack-a-me!
old country buffet - ocb
Walmart - Wally World
7-Eleven - Sev.

Employees of Shop and Save stores in Pittsburgh
invariably refer to them as "Slop and Slave".   Grin

We also have a home remodeling chain here called
Busy Beaver.  Some of the names used to refer to THAT
one can't be reprinted on a family forum.   Shocked
