In the fall of 1962, Woolworth’s in Burlington sold Mannlicher-Carcano rifles, over the counter, for under $20.*
My, how things have changed.
*...I can’t rewmember if they were $19.95 or $9.95
I got my first 30-30 from the JC Penney just up the street from Woolworth’s in the early 70’s - still have the original receipt and it was $49.99.
