Want to be on TV and couldn’t get on ‘American Idol?’ Try singing the Renys jingle

Renys, the famous Maine department store chain, is asking area shoppers with vocal talent — or at least a willingness to sing in front of others for a few seconds — to its Topsham and Saco stores Saturday to be recorded belting out the company jingle. There may be no Simon Cowell or Steven Tyler there to impress, but an in-tune rendition of the lyrics “Renys: A Maine Adventure” could still earn you time on television.

Renys locations in Saco (6 Scammon St.) and Topsham (65 Topsham Fair Mall Road), respectively.

According to the Renys website, those who try out on Saturday “could be on statewide TV,” presumably flexing their vocal muscles on store commercials.

Singing starts at 9 a.m. in Topsham and at 1 p.m. in Saco.
