"You'll love it at Levitz"
I remembered this slogan for Levitz furniture store from when I was growing up in Miami, FL. It was one of two furniture major furniture stores in the area in the 70's.
A couple of years ago I was calling a borrower to set up a property inspection for a furniture warehouse building. His last name was Levitz. Yes, he was The Levitz.
This year I scheduled the inspection and called Mr. Levitz. He set it up with a guy at his warehouse and I went out there this morning. I was touring the property when the guy told me that Mr. Levitz was 96 years old and still drove himself to work every day (thankfully, he lives close by)! As I was leaving, Mr. Levitz was coming through the door. I don't know why, but I loved meeting him...I guess 'cause his commercial was catchy enough for me to remember all these years, and the fact that he's 96...same age as my Papa Sam.
I love furniture. I was happiest when The P.A.N. would agree to buy furniture for the house. It's actually a turn-on, and if it weren't gross, I'd gladly whore myself out for a corner entertainment unit.
It's Wednesday, what do you love?
