FINDING THE PERFECT gift is never an easy task. Lincoln retailers offer many solutions to the question of what to
get Dad for Father’s Day.
Father’s Day makes for tough picks
By Tom Foster
It’s that time of year again.
Father’s Day looms on the hori
zon, and people everywhere are fid
geting, not sure what to buy for their
dear old dad.
Aside from the traditional
Father’s Day tie, there are a great
many gift ideas that go practically
unnoticed every year. This year,
some Lincoln stores hope to change
Nadine Lann, manager of the
Younker’s men’s department at
Gateway Shopping Center, said
fewer people are buying ties because
men have begun to conduct business
in casual clothes. She said casual
slacks and shirts are selling better
this year. The most common gift this
holiday is golf gear, she said.
Indeed, a glance at the Sunday
newspaper confirms Lann’s state
Stores as diverse as Sears,
Dillard’s and Jumbo Sports, 5000 N.
27th St., have colorful ads with pic

like a pro,” reads a Shopko ad, 100
N. 66“ St. and 4200 S. 27th St., sell

fully bright patterns.
“Low prices are in full swing for
Dad’s Day,” reads a Target ad, 333 N.
48th St. and 5330 S. 56th St., featur
ing an artificial putting green for the
living room floor.
Ken Johnson, manager of
Nebraska Bookstore, 1300 Q St.,
said Cornhusker-emblazoned golf
gear is selling especially well this
But shoppers whose Dads are not
seasoned golfers needn’t worry.
There are gift ideas aplenty.
Again, a glance at the Sunday
newspaper provides insight. One
store offers a paper shredder on sale
for Father’s Day. Another is selling
gun racks. The George Foreman
sloped grill is on sale this year. So
are electric razors, bottles of
cologne and variable speed jig-saws.
This year, Dad might like some
fishing lures. Or perhaps he needs a
beeper. Or a bottle of Rogaine and
some Nicorette gum.
Father’s Day gifts are available
this year at many Lincoln retailers:
hardware stores, drug stores, sport
ing goods stores and of course,
“Father’s Day is the next best
thing to Christmas,” Lann said. “It’s
how a lot of men get most of their
