There were Woolworths' all over NYC.  I used to go in there and sit and have a meal like I was a grown up.  I could be served no matter that I was a youngster.  They didn't have a lot of offerings but you could get a simple sandwhich and an ice cream float @Flatbush

I remember when Pergament went out business.  I bought doors from them before they went out business before the Home Depot came to my area.  This was not long after I bought my home.  How about Nobody Beats the Wiz?  Crazy Eddie?

@doolieAbraham and Strauss was A&S right?

 

Lerner's turned into New York and Company which isn't doing well now.  I remember Loehmann's too.  How about Filene's Basement?  Daffy's is gone too.
