I remember there being one there, too. And there was also a Southern Kitchen just east of Medallion Center on the north side of NW Highway. Best cinnamon rolls ever made.

Did anybody buy their jeans or tennis shoes at army-navy?
Has anyone found a decent replacement or substitution for Al's food store on Park Lane?
Were the stoplights on Central entrance ramps considered a good idea at the time?

I bought a pair of boots in that place in the early '70's and I still have them! They are fancy patent leather, explaining why, I hardly ever wore them. I think I was drunk at the time of purchase.. That building was falling down. The floor in there would have made a good mountain bike track it undulated so much but boy did they have a selection of boots!

Was the name of that store something like "Mistletoe Express"? I don't know but somehow that name sticks in my mind. I bought several pairs there back in the late '70s and early '80s.

No, they tore down "The Comet" many years ago.

I used to buy my pants called Redsnaps at Army/Navy store. I bought some jeans and overalls there too.
