But we carpooled together whenever we worked the same shift. Later she came and worked for me at NH part-time after a couple of career changes.



Wow, that's when Mary H was the manager? Or Tim ? I was at the Chapel Hill store at that time (with Julie) but I'm sure I dropped by 532 all the time since I was living in Raleigh. I'm sure I would remember most of your co-workers. I had been acting manager of Crabtree over Christmas 1989 but refused to take it on as F-T manager because it was the highest-volume store in the area and I was still pretty new and didn't want to get in over my head. At one point or another, I worked in 6 different WBs in the Triangle.
Tim was the manager when I was there. I really liked Mary, though. She brought anise candy to work.

You and I are like ships that pass in the night, man.

Speaking of mall things, I really miss when Hector's used to be downstairs at Crabtree and was a full-sized restaurant. My mom used to take us there to eat every time we went to Crabtree to shop. Good times, good times.

Watson's Drive Inn....with curb service operated many years in that building before the Ham and Egger. Old man Watson lived in the big colonial house on the hill behind the place. I remember when the city limit signs stood just a few yards north of Whitaker Mill Road on Wake Forest Rd. The thought of driving all the way out to Watson's Drive Inn....well that was just the falling off place

What I would give for a plate of Creekside fried seafood

Ugh, I'm sorry. I was there when he started; in fact I am the REASON he started. Remember me saying I was Acting Manager but didn't want to take over the store permanently? So they hired Tim instead from Ohio. I was his Asst for a few months until I moved over to the brand-new Chapel Hill store with Julie, and although he depended on me to show him the ropes, I got to experience his "style" a few times, ugh. Pretty much every employee I had hired ended up quitting under him. He eventually got fired and Mary took over, and ran that store for a long time. I even came back when I was in grad school and worked for her during holidays a little bit. Yes, small world. If I had taken over that store like they wanted, you might have come work for me instead

I remember the Chic-Fil-A at North Hills being downstairs, though maybe it had been upstairs originally? I always ate at Scotty's or the K&W so I didn't pay so much attention to C-F-A. Loved the Globetrotter and I had applied to work for them one time. North Hills Mall really was my "stomping grounds" from childhood through about age 30, except when I was working in other malls. Suedonym, if you worked at the yogurt place in 93-94, that's when I was the manager at the bookstore at NH

Maybe they moved it after I quit working at North Hills. I'm sure it was downstairs in the eighties.

The one at Crabtree was upstairs in the eighties, however. Near Sears.

Is Spencer Gifts still around?

Didn't North Hills have a Woolworth's lunch counter? I apologize if this has already been discussed...
