    I can barely remember Cas Walker’s stores. My grandmother used to shop there all the time and those stamps they had you collected and got free stuff. You all are right, Cas Walker was THE MAN and actually still is in so many ways. I did get to meet him one time at Ciderville Music Store not too long before he died. He was the nicest guy you could ever meet but like in this video, he sure didn’t care to speak his mind. We miss you Cas but you’ll never be forgotten

    Lots of stores gave out stamps in those days, Cas Walker had a redemption center insdie the store in our town. He was always having different contests where he would give stuff away. Mostly CA$H.

    I remember Cas Walker, but the funniest thing was my mother talking about one year they got in a really good crop of fresh pecans, or walnuts or something – anyhow, one day they announced that “Cas Walker’s got the best nuts in town…”

    There is a myspace page dedicated to this guy. Whenever we had a new employee come from another part of the country, I would always tell them to watch the “Farm and Home Hour” and they would see something very unique! LMAO

    I remember those Cas Walker Supermarket ads from when I was 8 or 9 years old. This guy looks and sounds exactly like my great grandfather.

    I believe that Cas broadcast this in response to the “Gypsies”. In the 1970s they robbed his Central Ave. store and made off with about 15 thousand in cash. Cas was mad about that for years.

    My dear aunt ran her car right through the glass panes in front of one of his stores!!

    Look at those hands! The man looks like he’d had a hard life.

    That old racist rascal was certainly a force to be reckoned with! I was just a kid when he was doing all that, but I remember people protesting in front of his store that served the African American community because his prices were higher there than in his other stores.

    I was born in1957 and lived until 1979 in Knoxville . My family shopped at the “Sign Of The Shears” all those years. I can still sing the “Thumpin’ Good” watermelon commercial by heart too! Cas Walker was a “one-of-a-kind”

    “Thumpin’ good, thumpin’ good.
    Cas Walker’s melons are thumpin’ good!
    Big and ripe, ready to eat,
    Cool, deliscious, and so sweet!
    Cas Walker’s melons are thumpin’ good !
    They are thumpin’ good,
    They are thumpin; good!

    That paper was too much! I remember it! Cas used to publish the pictures of shop lifters from his store in it…..

    Instead of Thumpin’ good, Cas is telling us to “Thump ‘EM Good!!” hahaha great post full of memories. I remember the yellow feet prints in the parking lots from my youth. RIP Cas–a true Knoxvillian

    Good ol’ Cas. I’m still lookin’ for video of the “Thumpin’ Good” ad with the kid eating watermelon.

    I can’t figure out why the suggested videos at right would have one about breastfeeding at the top. Wonder what Cas would say? Yeehaw!!
