This late seventies commercial for the store, “Color Tile” spoofs the game show hosts and styles of the period. It is pure silliness with an over the top host, contestant and silly puppet. Combined, these elements make it crazy enough that it would have been memorable if had run in my next of the woods when I was growing up.
I am not sure that this store exists anymore. I found a Color Tile still open down in Portland, but the logo is different and they do not have a “History” section.
