I remember a K-Mart in Tacoma (the first one in this area)
that opened in the 1960s. (What a bunch of cheap junk. My
parents bought me a pair of shoes there that didn't last
two days. Anyway, back on topic...) I remember there being
several 7" tape decks behind the customer service counter
that played the background music. I don't know if the
music was licensed from Muzak, but it definitely wasn't
piped in; it was played from within the store. FWIW.
