Ok, I 'm not sure if you guys can help me out.

Back in the 80s on the radio, there used to be this jingle for a variety store, with women singing (I think), and it would say "_______ (can't remember the name!) Variety Store, we bring good things to you!!"

Does anyone know what the heck the store was called? I think it was two letters with "and" in the middle. And where the locations were? I think i vaguely remember going to one in Kalamazoo, but I could be mixing that up with my millions of trips to Big Wheel when I was a kid.

The jingle was definitely on Kalamazoo area radio, because we lived in and around Paw Paw, Lawton and Kzoo when I was really little.

This jingle has literally been bothering me for years.

Thanks!

Aha! I found it after all! It was G.L. Perry Variety Store, and the jingle apparently said "have we got something for you". They had a location in Southland in Kalamazoo, so that's the one we went to when i was a kid.

Does anyone have a recording of this jingle??
