An October 7, 1964 ad heralding the grand opening of a Texan Gibson's Discount Center. Note the price of an entire carton of cigarettes...$2.50! This chain had a meteoric rise and fall during the 1960s and '70s. Shady business practices, lawsuits and probes by the Federal Trade Commission brought about its demise in the early 1980s.
