Is this a "Gambles" Bike ??

I have read that the Gambles Department Stores carried a line of 10-speed bikes back in the 1970s and '80s that had this label.

The name is on the head badge and on the seat tube.

Low end Shimano (Thunderbird & Lark) derailleurs and as heavy as a dead priest (as my father would have said).

Gambles bike ?

Confirm or deny ?
