This above strip ran on December 2, 1965 in the Lorain Journal. In it, the two meet the shopping center's well-remembered talking Christmas tree.
Another ad (below) from December 7, 1965 is a little more hard-sell. In this episode, the androgynous Li’l Shef visits the shopping center. The ad also features a keen little map of the area before Route 2 was built.
