Your city hasn't made it until it has a Tim Hortons on every corner.

...Okay, maybe that's just Buffalo bias speaking. Pottery Barn, though, really? One of the posters on the first page of comments included that on the shortlist. I'd have never thought of Pottery Barn as anything to brag about--partially because my assumption is always that the 'higher-end' chains have no presence here in Buffalo, where Pottery Barn long has, heh.

The only other US locations are Manhattan, Brooklyn and LA.
I occasionally see bumper stickers featuring their logo here in the Buffalo area, ~400 miles from [what you claim to be their nearest location in] NYC. Never knew what it was, although I vaguely recall reading about it before (probably while drunk)

I used to 'read' DuPont Registry religiously at a certain stage in my youth...that magazine convinced me that one needed to be in SoCal or South Florida to buy any exotic sports cars, lol. My favorite dealership locally when I was a kid was Alfa Romeo for its obscurity, but it didn't last beyond the mid-'90s.

I would add Alamo Drafthouse Cinema to the list. They are rare and coveted outside of Texas, but rolling out to select cities across the country. Lubbock in Texas has one, but Denver made a big deal out of getting one. It's like Nordstrom outside of the Pacific Northwest.

As a bit of a man child. Dave & Busters interest me more than most of these.
