“The Family Booterie store in Hillsboro village had a fluoroscope that would show your feet inside the shoes you were trying on.  I wonder how many cooked feet resulted from that particular commercial gimmick. I can still hear their ad…”Two for the price of one plus a dollar, two for the price of one plus a dollar…” followed in a few weeks by “table and rack (clap clap) it’s back.” – Nashville Links
