The Blue Light Special is BACK!


Don’t ask me why but this makes me smile:

Attention, Kmart shoppers: The blue light special is back.

The venerable discounter is reviving the legendary sales tactic on Saturdays to bolster sales and lure shoppers who have migrated to other big box retailers, said Tom Aiello, spokesman for Sears Holding Corp., which owns Kmart.

Maybe it’s because of the Pavlovian response I have to the announcement that there is a Blue Light Special going on in aisle 3. Even at the tender age of six I got excited when a six-piece pots and pans set was discounted by $1.75.

I’m just sayin’…
