Woolworth & Woolco Halloween TV Commercial (1976)

...yanked from the comments because it's just too cool, here's a vintage Woolworths/ Woolco Halloween TV ad from 1976 that features the "Sounds to Make You Shiver" LP!

Thanks for spotting it Lochnar13, and thanks to Super 8 for uploading it in the first place; you both rule!

Glad you liked it! Woolco was a big deal in my area when I was a kid. I had both the Batman costume and the "...Shiver" LP as a kid so this clip was a cool flashback for me too.

Pretty cool. We had a woolworth's and a W.T. Grant's right next to each other when I was a kid. I never had the LP until recently, but I did spot a couple of costumes I had (Superman and the one with the Skeleton Mask). I think I also had a Frankenstein that came from there.

Yeah, I loved Woolworth's as a kid (& happily ate at their lunch counter til it went out of business), and those old Ben Cooper costumes just look so fantastic all lined up like that, don't they? As a kid I recall mocking them, but I'd sure love to have something like that "Jaws" one now. What a time capsule.

The Woolworth commercial doesn't appear to be on Youtube at that particular address anymore, but I went to Youtube and found it here:

Eugene, Oregon where I hail, had a Woolworth's and a Newberrys downtown. One of them had the counter restaurant, and photo booth along with the downstairs toy section. I miss the downtown mall. Most of the scary records I once owned were purchased there.
