Phone of the Day: Avaya Partner 18 Euro Digital Telephone at Phone Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet in Aurora, IL
I spotted this legacy basic Avaya digital telephone that works on Avaya’s Partner system. Polo has long been a user of Partner systems in their stores since the mid 1990s. Before that they used ATT Spirit key systems in their stores. Their larger full line Ralph Lauren stores use Avaya 6400 sets with a brief ...

I visited a TJ Maxx today in the burbs that I haven’t been to since January 1995 when this store was brand new. I remember going to this new TJ Maxx with my late parents in January 1995 and appreciating their brand new dolphin gray Nortel M7208 telephones. It’s hard to believe that was 24 ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel T7208 Digital Telephone at TJ Maxx in Countryside, IL
This large TJ Maxx in the Chicago suburbs is probably my favorite one. They get the best merchandise and have great friendly employees. They also use their Nortel phone system quite well.
