Lionel Toy Warehouse. Need I say more?

Eckerd Drug. There was one my grandmother took me to that still had a lunch counter. They served a great hit dog with a perfectly toasted bun. They had the soda fountain as well.
Eckerd Drug. Were the ones with those "Safe On Your Own" commercials from the early 1990s?

Media Play
Another frequent destination for my family. It was a movie store, a book store, a music store, a video game store and a toy store all in one, huge location. They always had cool, new products every week or two so I went there all the time. My brother even worked there for a few years when he was in high school so it has a place in my heart.
Kay Bee Toys?! I did not give them permission to close down. Open back up, right now.
