The thread that was about old stores and that, was such a cute thread.  I've been seeing really cute ones but anyway did anyone mention the store

 

 

 

Robert Hall....

 

I remember the jingle and my father would be singing it when I had to get up for school.  It drive me bananas because he would sing it where it REALLY needled me!!!!  I'm dying laughing as I'm typing this.

 

It went....School bells ringing, children singing...back to Robert Hall again.  It was geared toward going back to school needing new clothes.  If that makes any sense. 

 

OOOHHHH  it used to get my goat!!!!!!  OH BOY!!!!  Did you guys ever get this kind of thing?   I'd love to hear some replies...XXXOOO

Very very catchy. I really like "Go Go," myself.

Never heard of Robert Hall.

Spent most of my life in So. Cal. and well recall Robert Hall. There was a store in a small shopping center near us.

Since you mentioned store jingles, I’d like to do a shout out to any Oklahomans @Sooner . We lived in OKC in the late 80s and I can still sing all of the BC Clark holiday anniversary sale jingle. It was a jewelry store and if it’s still around, they better still be playing that jingle!  “Jewelry is the gift to give....”

I remember it. There was one near my father's office so when we had to go there (rarely) my mother always wanted to stop at RH  and look around.

@tucsongal Jewelry is the gift to give ‘cause it's the gift that'll live and live. So give the gift you know can't fail — from B.C. Clark's Anniversary Sale.

 

Most sales are after Christmas, but Clark's is just before. 'Most evrything is marked way down — Savings you can't ignore at Oklahoma's oldest jeweler — since eighteen-ninety-two. So give the gift you know can't fail from B.C. Clark's Anniversary Sale.

 

I have engagement ring and other pieces from Clarks!

 

You can hear and SEE the B.C. Clark jingle commercial on YouTube--

  Oh, I remember Robert Hall!

It was only about 2 miles down the road, a block or two before Sears Roebuck.

 

I remember my mother taking me there and buying two new school dresses and a beautiful brown corduroy winter coat.

 

The prettier dress had a net under layer that was itchy as all get out!

The other dress was red & white check with little butterfly appliques. I wore that one for my 2nd grade school picture.

 

That pretty coat wasn't warm at all, and I shivered like crazy all through winter, but I loved it.

I also remember Robert Hall - my mom loved to go in and peruse the ENTIRE store at a snail's pace.

 

And, yes I heard the jingle all the time before school started.
