    Hi All

    This store used to be in my town, but then it closed down

    Anyone else have it in their town or was it just in mine?

    It was a department store which sold electronics, Toys, etc as well

          I do, the full name of the store though it's full name was "Best Products", and was more a catalog showroom than a department store.

                Yes; BEST was the store I found the ANIMAX Action Figure I was asking about in the forum earlier

                In the Lot now there was a COUNTY MARKET store until it closed recently, and now, there is a HOBBY LOBBY store

                  Glad to be of help. There used to be a Best location in my hometown until the mid 90's I think. Today it's land was re-developed into a Home Depot.

                    Yes I remembered the store very well, we had one or two in Houston. My parens went there allot when they were going through this phase of buying "what nots" for the house. They sold allot of jewelry there too. They closed in the lae 80s. I tried doing a search for them, but with a name like "best" it's next to impossible.
