    • I miss those places, a person could find anything there..from penny candy to gift wrapping to hair color.  I am not a Wal-Mart fan in any way and drug stores are not the same.

    • No Mom & Pop stores around here.
      We have Fred’s stores around here.  Family Dollar and Dollar General.  

      My nephew and my niece’s husband both work for Family Dollar on the corporate level.  My nephew finds property for them and my niece’s husband is a financial officer with them.  I keep trying to tell them they need to let me come to work for them and re-do all their stores...lol.

      We use to have a Woolworths down on Broad Street in Augusta, GA years and years ago.  I was little.  

      And I’m not a fan of Walmart either.....

    • We still have several small family owned stores. There’s even an appliance store that has survived despite being surrounded by Home Depot and Lowes. I shop local whenever I can to keep these stores alive.

    • Quite a few family owned businesses.  The grocery store where I shop and the hardware store where I shop are family owned.  Actually the chain of stores I work for is family owned.  

      I’d say the town where I work has more family owned businesses than not.  I shop locally owned whenever possible, though I do spend some money (as little as possible) at kmart and walgreens.

      Woolworths went down the drain in about 1987 or thereabouts, not that we had one anywhere near close to where I live.

    • No mom and pop shops along those lines. There are plenty of locally owned businesses here and I shop them when I can. However I admit to being a Target girl!

    • There is an area not far from me called Hatboro, they still have a long strip of little stores on their main street.  It feels like a person has gone back in time, no 5 & 10 type stores, but a feel of the old days.  There is also another area called Chestnut Hill/Mount Airy and also Manayunk, which again has blocks of little stores, it just has a great feel to it.  I remember the Woolworths as a kid, and there was one in hub’s neighborhood when I moved here, it closed in 1987 when son was born, you are right, T.
