Remembering Rhode Island's
Good Ol' Days
I had the pleasure of working for Valueland, for 9 years, mid 80's to early 90's...what a great bunch of people that worked at Valueland, Johnston. I still maintain some friendships from those I had the pleasure of working with...thank you for posting this photo, great memories that take me back a long time!! Jennifer..Johnston
I wish we could still email this blog. I found, serving as a bookmark in one of my college textbooks, a receipt from the Smith St. store dated 9/16/85 when I was a student at good old RIC. They charged .03 for bags and the price of Ramen noodles hasn't changed in 27 years!
I worked at valueland from 83 to 86 in the Seekonk store, I remember the good times there. I used to buff the floors and I worked from 6am to 12pm. Those were the days.
Next to K-Mart in Johnston the one I remember
I have very fond memories as young boy shopping at Value Land in the mid 80's with my mother and older brother (Seekonk Location). I remember I used to beg my mother for various breakfast cereals, Bazooka Joe gum (Party box), and Garbage Pail Kids cards! She also used to buy some of the old Sci-Fi VHS cassettes that were conveniently placed near the check out isles. I also to used sneak out to go next door to K-Mart to check out the latest Gi-Joe and Transformer figures just to pass the time. Thank you so much for posting this ad! I had forgotten what their logo looked like. I believe the words were green and orange if I'm not mistaken. I still get good vibes when I drive by that plaza! Best ~ J.M
