Another honest commercial from Empire Carpet with the Empire Man, this one acknowledged that just about all carpet companies carry the same product brands. The big difference with Empire is that they delivered the next day. Plus, customers didn’t need to make any installment payments until February. That was Empire’s policy: simple, honest and factual without any loud announcers insulting the viewer with crazy claims in a crazy voice. Then as today, Empire stood for the basics: a fair price for quality carpeting delivered in a quick, timely manner, and a convenient credit plan that fit into any household’s budget.
