Westmore Bike?

Someone on my local CL is selling a Westmore bike. I tried Google and searching the forums but I can't find anything about this bike/brand. The seller is calling it collectible but it looks more like an old department store bike to me.

I'm not really interested in the bike, but I am curious why there is no info anywhere about this? I've never heard of Westmore before.

Thanks.

Definitely department store bike. It looks just like the modern "cruisers" Wally World sells, plastic pedals and all. I don't know who would've sold it, or how old it is. But, I can't imagine it's over 15 years old.
