I too, noticed the same thing and was just as surprised. I used to ride my bicycle up to Mel's and buy caps for my cap gun there. I'm 58 years old.
I wonder if it had anything to do with all the Lottery tickets they sold.

I graduated OHS in 1970 and worked for Jack & Mel at their store. They underpaid us but treated us well. Jack and Mel ran a cash business and it was evident to everyone, including the IRS, that it was 1 for the IRS and 20 for me! Great memories.

I remember back in the 60's Mel and Jack got busted for selling hot toys. It was a great place to work..... low wages but great 'benefits'. I also remember Mel eating a bagel with some very special sauce on it one Sunday morning after we put the papers together.
