$399.95 in 1953? Wow. An inflation calculator on the internet indicated that $399.95 in 1953 equals $3,466.34 in current dollars. (usinflationcalculator.com)

Most items do inflat in price as the years go on but that is not the case with electronics. I have a IBM personal computer with no hard drive that cost over $10k back in 1984. I doubt that you can buy a computer today without a hard drive and if you did, it would probably be $99.

They had some amazing hours for service back then. 9am to 10pm daily and 1pm to 6pm on Sundays. Take me back to the good old days. Now days, it is a throw away world.

Penn Furniture had two full time repairmen whose job it was to make house calls to fix TV's. How times have changed.
