Rumbelows? Coming back in 2010?
Yes, that barely-forgotten name from the high street of yesteryear could be making a bizarre comeback soon. US electrical retail giant Best Buy has trademarked the musty old Rumbelows name and have been researching into whether customers would flock there like dogs after a lump of raw steak.
Stranger things have happened and Best Buy could be thinking that customers might be more inclined to try a store brand that they’re familiar with, however hazy the memories might be.
Hopefully, they’ll go the whole hog and revive the singing appliances that serenaded the never-seen ‘Mrs Moore’ in ads such as these… oh, and can Best Buy bring back Pacers chewy minty sweets too? They were lovely.
