      and yes KB Toys is still around, under a different name, iirc. (Mabey KB Toy Works ? I dunno, it's 2:30AM, and I'm stressed atm..)


      Say Adventure of Link, are you from around the Cincinnati area? And if so is the mall called Northgate?

          Am I from Cincy Area ?: Yes. Northern KY, right close to the river.

          Is the mall Northgate ?: No. *rrrrrnt* More like Florence Mall + Newport shopping center.

                        Its just called Folks now. They have the best gizzards of any restaurant I've been to. And they're peach muffins are killer.

                        Mad Mike mentioned Raxx's earlier. They disappeared here around 1990 as well. It was my sisters first job.





                        Po Folks ROCKED. Their chicken was sooooo good and OMG the biscuts.
                        tea out of mason jars (I remember that now that was goood).


                        So they changed their name to just Folks?I didn't know that I just always thought they completley closed down.The one's we had around here closed down back in the early 90's.



                        Stores I remember are

                        TG&Y (kinda like Wal Mart)

                        IGA

                        Dunkin Doughnuts (we do have gas stations that sell Dunkin Doughnuts but it's not the same.)

                        Childrens Palace

                        Sevice Merchandise (the one around here closed down a few yrs ago.)

                        Taco Tico (kinda like Taco Bell)

                        Chuck E Cheese's ( we do have one that just opened a few yrs ago but it's not nearly as good as it was back in the 80's.)

                        It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

                                That's so funny. Around here you can't go 2 miles without hitting a Dunkin Donuts. And I'm not overexaggerating that either. I can't even count how many we have here. I can think of 5 off the top of my head.

                                Also, a Target just opened up here last year.

                                And I miss JC Penny's! We had one in the mall, but they closed and a Filene's moved in, and it sucks. We have to drive a long way to get to a JC Penny now, but I love their clothes, and we always end up saving like 50% on everything.

                                    No longer around that I went to:

                                    Department stores:
                                    Woodward's and Woodward's Food Floor (Coquitlam Centre)
                                    Eaton's (Coquitlam Centre)
                                    Woolco (Lougheed Mall)
                                    K-Mart (Westwood Mall)

                                    Burquitlam Plaza:
                                    Tino's Pizza
                                    Willis Source For Sports
                                    Jim's Farm Market

                                    In other places:
                                    Chuck E Cheese (the only location in the area, near Lougheed Mall)
                                    Buns Master Bakery (a few locations)
                                    Muffin Break
                                    Fuddrucker's (only around a couple years near Lougheed Mall)
                                    Lone Star Cafe (Took Fuddrucker's place after they closed down, went there once. Not bad. Closed down as well.)
                                    Arby's (Disappeared almost completely from the Vancouver and Greater Vancouver area. There used to be several locations, including in the 2 areas that I posted pictures of, but they vanished out of thin air. They have made a resurgence in the past couple of years, and there are several locations again. I don't eat there, though, just when I was little.)
                                    Sam The Record Man
                                    Dufferin Game Room
                                    Card Sharks
                                    Winning Spirit (Vancouver Canucks team store, used to be at Pacific Coliseum and some malls. Changed it's name to Authentix and is now located at GM Place.)
                                    Yogurty's Frozen Yogurt (Lougheed Mall)
                                    Fields (Some clothing store my mom went to and since we were little, she usually had to drag us shopping with her. Boring times.)
                                    Fanny's Fabrics (See Fields explanation, except they sold fabrics and patterns and that shit, instead of actual clothes.)
                                    Buy-Low Foods
                                    This one toy store at Lougheed Mall who's name escapes me.
                                    Colour Your World (Paint supplies)
                                    Cody's Books (Westwood Mall)
                                    Louie's Submarine (Coquitlam Centre)
                                    W.H. Smith Books (Coquitlam Centre)

                                    They have a handful of Little Caesar's around here. Just a few of them. I figured they would be everywhere. Then again, restaurant-wise, BC doesn't, and has never really had any Taco Bells that I know of. Just one on the way to Whistler, and maybe 2 others. Lack of Taco Bell has always been a mystery to a lot of people, I'm sure.

                                      As far as stores that 3x1-1 didn't cite:

                                      I remember that there used to be a Spencer's Clothing in Coquitlam Centre where Sport Chek is now. Also used to be a Sports Experts near where the old food court was. Shoe Strings is gone too.

                                        Another store I forgot 3-D, my Grandfather worked there for a while. There were at least 2 locations that I know of. Michigan City, In and Valparaiso, In, does anybody know if there were any others?
