Did they go out of business or were they brought out? I'm just curious and would like to have a brief discussion about them. Nothing big.

Anyone remember Farrell's? That place was way better than any carpet store!

There used to be a Clyde's on Van Dyke in Shelby Twp. Not sure if it is still there. Didn't Marilyn Turner do TV spots for them?

I was told that Irving Nussbaum owned Clyde's as well as New York Carpet world. He was a much better pitchman than the Empire old man.
Farrell's made the Pig trough, and embarrassed the shit out of you on your birthday

The Empire line's actually out of New York. I'll take Irv Nussbaum any day of the week. His dry delivery and cast iron hair had its own unique appeal.
My Farrell's memory consisted of those jawbreakers the size of softballs that always required a hammer to break down. Thank goodness I never celebrated MY own birthday at Farrell's- attending someone else's birthday was a different matter.

Farrells still exists, b.t.w.
