In the 60s, stereo systems were rather primitive. In the early 70s, stereos came of age with the baby boomers. My military buddies who had spent time overseas came home with those nice Sansui stereos. My stereo came from RS. The RS Realistic brand. The RS store had an entire wall of stereos to fit any budget. I got my money's worth from that Realistic stereo.
Next up was in 1973 with the oil crisis. Nixon closed all the gas stations on Sundays and cut the speed limits nationwide to 55. This caused an explosion in everyone getting a CB radio so we could tell each other where all the Smoky Bears were hiding. RS addressed the CB market with walls and walls of CB Radios. Breaker breaker 19. And before Sammy Hagar sang about he can't drive 55, C.W. McCall was singing about Wolfcreek Pass.
A few months ago, post RS bankruptcy, I went to buy some self-stick Velcro strips. The store manager grabbed a pack off of the shelf and was going to ring them up. "How much? I asked. "$15.00", said he. "No way", said me. And I headed off to the other end of the mall to Autozone and got my self-stick Velcro strips for $3.95.
Note to RS management: Don't try to screw over your customers. Your store is handy at times, but you are selling the same stuff everyone else is selling, too.
