We had a lot of radio shack in new england and my back still remembers those long heavy wiremold stringers, i think they came out of w hartford.
Let us not forget fashion bug stores and the dreaded payless shoe stores
How about those Goodyear tire loads??? 45' vans stuffed from nose to tail w/ hundreds of tires all laced together. Some loads contained several different shipments. The only way you could tell one customer's freight from the other was w/ different colored chalk marks on the tires. Remember that freight?
