Remember these?

YouTube - Classic Nynex-Civil Engineers

Crazy Eddie:

Starrett City (OMG I so wanted to live there!):

Not a commercial, but who could ever forget Morton Downey Jr?!

I tried to find "Puppy City" but couldn't ("Free housebreaking wee wee pads with every purchase!")

Any others?

"Nobody Beats the Wiz" around 1986:

YouTube - Nobody beats The Wiz electronics tv commercial 1986 christmas

"$217 for a programmable VCR..."

I want to say that 25 years later, Shandong beat the Wiz, pummeled the Wiz into submission!

This is a little more regional to the Shore area, but CRAZY JOE'S!! They were well known for having a "Going Out Of Business Sale" just about every year and having the sale so successful that they were able to keep afloat.

YouTube - IDEAL CLOTHING COMMERCIAL Retro JINGLE FROM THE 60's 70's

IMO one of the top 10 commercial jingles EVER, not just in NJ, lol. Did they play this in north Jersey or just south? The store is still open, it's in Hammonton. I have never forgotten the words in 40-something years!
