Back in the pre-Best Buy Days, television stores like this were commonplace in towns large and small. The former Vic’s House of Television is now a house of satellite dishes. Check out the "Hey Look" in the display window. That’s one way to get the attention of passing motorists! The wall-painted sign is advertising Zenith’s System 3, a television line manufactured from the late 1970s until the early 1990s. Zenith is today owned by South Korea’s LG Group.

Litchfield is a city in Montgomery County, and is located off exit 52 on I-55 about halfway between Springfield, Illinois and St. Louis, Missouri. The population of Litchfield was 6,815 at the 2000 Census. Historic U.S. Route 66 runs through the City.
