Jimmy Z, the food and drink place at 1712 Hewitt Ave. in Everett, advertised a Thanksgiving dinner for just $6.95. It included ham or turkey, homemade mashed potatoes, fresh baked rolls, fresh vegetables, sweet potatoes, cranberries, tossed salad, and pumpkin or mincemeat pie.
"Say Merry Christmas With A Smile," advertised the Sears portrait studio. It was a last time offer available for Christmas delivery. The cost of a group of prints was $19.95. No appointment was necessary and the offer was good through Dec. 5.
