Favorite Local Commercials: Lamenting the Loss of Becky's
You can't have lived in St. Louis long without seeing Becky's Carpet and Tile Commercials. Now that it's closing, where does it fit in the pantheon of local ads?
The cheesy special effects, the changes in her size, the glorious view of the Arch — they were all there in the Becky's Carpet and Tile ads that were a staple of St. Louis local television.
Now comes news that Becky's Carpet and Tile Superstores will be closing. The South County store is expected to stay open awhile longer as inventory is moved there.
KSDK Ch. 5 reported on its website that employees of the store were told on Friday that they five-store chain was shutting down. Becky's has stores in Hazelwood, Ballwin, St. Peters and Collinsville, as well as South County.
I've lived in St. Louis about 10 years; I'd probably lived here 10 minutes before I saw my first Becky's commercial.
What are you favorite local St. Louis commercials — current or past? Or, do you have some least-favorite commercials from St. Louis TV?
