1963 – Thanksgiving Day Specials – Minot’s Piggly Wiggly Stores were featuring these specials for Thanksgiving in their newspaper ad….. Bridgeman Ice Cream ½ gallon – 69 cents…. Jello – 3 pkgs $1.00 …. Butter – 49 cents a pound…. Celery – 10 cents for a large stalk…. Powdered or brown sugar – Two 1 pound boxes for 25 cents…. And Quaker king size TV tray tables for 99 cents with each $5.00 purchase….. Big Dollar stamps were given with purchases and there were coupons available to get extra stamps with various items purchased or with certain dollar amounts spent. The Big Dollar Stamps were collected and then redeemed for merchandise out of catalogs or redemption centers…. In 1963 Piggly Wiggly had only two locations in Minot. Oak Park Shopping Center and Highway 2 East by the Fair Grounds. Pictured below is the Oak Park Piggly Wiggly in Mid 1960's
