Newspaper adverts for grocery stores almost always mention whole fryers. This 3/4 page ad from Chatham's is no different. It highlights the chicken, caricaturizes it and gives it the byline. All's well in Clucksville unless you're the main course.
Unfortunately, it's not in color and no high profile local brands that I favor are included so it's a disappointing ad to some extent. But seeing the block letters of Chatham in their oval cartouche are enough to salvage it for posterity. Even if the ad's effective date was a year off from the publication's. A call to 759-4600 likely remedied that.
