Rex Electronics and Appliances has always made me chuckle. They have invented more "sale names" than there are fish in the sea. Today they will probably be advertising their "the week after Easter sale or the 3 days after Good Friday sale". They have a sale everyday and always have a good reason for the sale... "the one miner survived in the WV mine collapse sale" or "the Angelina and Brad baby-making sale".
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
