Yes, they had a jingle in the early '60s. Something along the lines of "it's fun to shop with your family at wonderful Treasure Island." The spot also ran on KQV and who knows where else.

It was one of those pre-K Mart, sort of grungy indie discount store chains that popped up in the suburbs during the 1950s and early '60s. There was also Clabers on McKnight Road, Albert's on Route 8 near Allison Park, Buy-Wise in Squirrel Hill and several other places, and something called Misco that had a jingle spot on radio around the same time as Treasure Island. I believe Misco was an early incarnation of the membership store. It had locations across from the Greyhound station and one across from J&L on Carson Street, and possibly others.
