Commodore Store Displays?

Postby cobracon » Fri Oct 27, 2017 7:49 pm

Did Commodore ever produce store displays for their computers? I tried to do a google search, but came up empty handed.

I worked in a K-Mart Canada electronics department during the C64/Amiga years (late 1980s) and don't remember any specific Commodore branding for the displays. The Amiga and C64 were set up on display racks as demonstrators, but these were K-Mart racks, not Commodore provided.

I can't remember seeing any Commodore branded display stands anywhere else....MAYBE in the VIC-20 years --- I have a vague memory of a large display stand ---- but I could be confusing that with an Intellivision / Atari one in my mind (the kind that looks like a large glass cabinet with the console demonstrating itself in the centre and to either side, above and below all the software / accessories on display and stored.

I know the Atari line up had some nice displays. Just seems weird Commodore would not do the same.

Yes, they did. I have a photo from a store display saved by the Dienstagstreff Commodore Club. i'll see if I can find it.
