Hi!

My grandparents were hoarders, and lived in Silver Spring, Maryland from 1965 to 2007.  It was my family's job to excavate the house and sort through all the crap that they had accumulated through the years.  They saved bags from retail stores to reuse in the future, and I managed to save these from being thrown out.

I remember the Ames "Working to Win You Back" slogan.  It was after we had emerged from the first Chapter 11.

Those JC Penney bags are very old.  I remember my mom getting bags and boxes with that
logo in the late 60's-early 70's.
