    K Mart
    Bradlees
    Toys R Us
    Shop Rite
    Some Japanese store (I used to buy Touhou there, and when I saw Megaman & Bass for the SNES, I literally squealed and danced around the aisles yelling "IT'S BASS!" repeatedly. I was holding Lotus Land Story in the other hand...)
    signature I can't do it!

        Good topic!

        Anyone remember Best or Rally's Hamburgers?

        btw, where are you located at?

        In southern California there still are: Suncoast, Little Casear's, and Ponderosa places, odd. :?

        Rally's still exist here in Missouri.

          Woolworth's There was one on Cherokee Street. It was just few blocks from my house.

          Ben Franklin's and Famous Barr. They were right by each other!
          Ventures
          Street Side Music

          Those stores had the best toys,clothes and music!

          Best of all they were actually IN the city, NOT the county!
          Now they only exist in memory, photos, and old newspaper clippings.

            There's one place I've been going to since I was little that I still manage to visit every so often: Amazing Comics, in Long Beach, CA. The store space may have shrunk in half as of a few years ago, but the selection remains intact.

              That's awesome, oh how I wish my childhood comic book store was still open. It was called Brain Damage, they had everything you could think of in there.

                  And Bradlee's I have a very old Bradlee's night gown and mini one for a stuff animal tucked away in some corner of my room.

                  Places I remember and no longer exist (At least in Northern Va)

                  -Bradlee's
                  -Caldor
                  -Best

                  I grew up in Virginia too, I even worked at Bradlee's and we loved Roy Rogers. That's sad that Roy Rogers is gone, all those stores you mentioned brings back memories. I miss Waldenbooks and B. Dalton. Is Friendly's still around? I remember Woodies and Best too. Thanks for the memories.

                    There was a K-Mart by my apartment as a kid and we would also walk over there. The staff probably hated us because we basically played there haha.
