Rexall Drug. There is a Canadian chain of the same name unrelated to the American chain.

I came here to say Robinson's (later RobinsonsMay), May Company (later RobinsonsMay ), Broadway (loved their earrings), and Bullocks.

And Fedco! I loved Fedco, it was a big event when my dad took us there.

I still love graphic tees and cargo pants. Though my college age son has convinced me to NOT wear cargo pants lol.

Yes! I remember Fiorucci in NYC.

Loved it!

Anyone remember Manic Panic? I think that now they are best known for their hair coloring products.

In the 70s, "Manic Panic was a store on St. Mark's place that sold originally designed clothes by Tish and Snooky, up cycled shoes, clothes and accessories.

I worked at Manic Panic from 1977 through 79. It was a fun place to work at the time and the owners remain close friends.

Those were the days! My sisters shopped at Manic Panic (don't think I did, unless you also sold records in which case I probably did) and I used to go to Canal Jean, I. Buss, and a few others to get cool punk-rocky stuff.

Did anybody go to the store called Johns' Bargain Store ? my mom used to drag me there all the time
Yep, they had a location on Main St. in Orange NJ. God, what crap! They sold cheap knockoff's like G.I. Moe and Buncan yo-yo's. I didn't mind it so much when I was little, but as I got older I figured out it was all crap!

Do you also remember:

S. Klein
Haynes
Jacobs
Meyer Brothers
Spelled "Hahne's" but pronounced "Haynes".

I don't remember Jacobs or Meyer Brothers. Must've been before my time or out of my area.

I remember all the old stores in Newark that went out one by one after the '67 riots, including Klein's, Two Guys, Bamberger's, and I think Hahnes and maybe Ohrbach's also had stores there. There was also Muir's department store in East Orange that was a single-location store which just went out of business in the mid-70's rather than retreating to the suburban malls.
