Phone of the Day: Nortel M2008 at a Von Maur Department Store in Lombard, IL

Yesterday I visited a classy Nordstrom like Midwest department store named Von Maur.  I especially like this store as I saw that it contains a state of the art Nortel Meridian 1 telephone system.  This system cannot be more than 12 years old, as I remember going to this store in 2004 and it contained a ROLM 9200 pbx installed in 1994, during the height of ROLMs heyday.   The Nortel system must have been installed a short time after my last visit in 2004.

Unlike a lot of department stores, that use boring analog phones at each checkout, this store uses digital multi line M2008 sets at each register.  Looks towards the back of this photo and you will find the telephone.
