Flea Market Montgomery - former Wards?

Their infamous commercial is now making the rounds on the web:

Anyway, looking at their website...

There's a photo of the building, and when I showed it to Terry K, he said "it looks like a 1980s Wards." I'm not familiar with Wards prototypes though...

His suit is the same color as that sectional! Why is he in a different outfit in every shot?

There were some MW stores that looked a bit like that, but they were double doors and had windows. I'd say either it's been extensively remodeled, or it isn't a former MW.

heres an image of the store: it doesn't seem large enough to be a full-scale department store or former discount store. Also notice the closed winn dixie at the other end of the center

Judging by some of the shots we've seen in the video (the long version) there are definately some windows and a set of doors.

Wards had this bad habit of not using too many consistant designs in their stores.
