Mace Electronics at 2631 West 8th Street in Erie, Pennsylvania had its grand opening on Thursday, September 19, 1968. Customers who spent at least $10 in the store received a free ladies raincoat.

You could save $50 off the price of an Ampex 861 portable reel to reel player, which was on sale for $249.95. Or you could pick up an 8-track player for $49.95.  An AM-FM transistor radio sold for $1.99, and a portable Citizen Band CB was $8.88.

"We are loaded with real values in every department. Visit us this week for good buys and Free Gifts. Many are limited hurry," read the ad in the Erie Daily Times.

Mace Electronics had a warehouse at 28 East 24th St.  The business was owned by Mace Levin.
