WMBA big bunny ad

WMBA ad,
Win a Big 6' Easter Bunny,
Beaver County Times,
March 31, 1965

In 1965, WMBA radio--1460 on your dial--held a contest for a "Big 6'" Easter Bunny. Could a six foot bunny not be "big"?


  1. Which participating stores???

    1. Stewart's Hardware was one of the participating stores

    2. jd aka john domansky

      stewarts was the premier hardware store in every sense of the word, he had it all right there, not in large amounts of each, but he had it & it was quality stuff, no falling apart after one use or wear out to soon, there was a similar hardware store near me here, it was open until just last year or so. it was a historical place, have one in my town, not as great but still tops, now an ace hardware, that treats you like family , wife has shopped there whole life, late 70 s now. also had a donatellis pharmacy type across the street. only had a great soda shop & a big old phone booth too.. it is so sad to see thse great old places go away slowly.

  2. If there was a list of participating stores, I didn't see it. But I didn't worry about not knowing where to enter because, even though the ad doesn't give an ending date for the contest, I assumed that it was over by now.
