A 1984 commercial from the earlier days of Empire Carpet, this one played on the classic request: “Pick a card, any card.” The clever reference was to the viewer’s options to pay with the three main credit cards or even select Empire’s great credit plan. It also referred to picking any carpet because any and every carpet in their huge warehouse qualified for any of the available credit plans. Customers could then pick their free gift, phone or shampooer. It was an array of pick-and-choose options, and it treated customers with honesty and respect. Great commercial; great carpets.
