There was a similar post like this on NintendoAge but since vintage game collecting is 95% about nostalgia, we might as well all discuss the stores, shops, parks, malls, etc. from our childhood that have long past away.

Do you have a photo you'd like to share, or remember a chain that's been closed for 20 years and would like to talk about fond memories of being at those places?  This is the thread.

For a bit of inspiration, from the original NA post, this was a site I found for some photos of places in Columbia, SC that I use to frequent as a kid.  It's worth browsing, even if you've never been to Columbia.  I have no clue who this guy is, but he's worked extensively to summarize information about old, closed shops.  You can find a LOT of information about closed chains and photos of "familiar faces".

K-Mart

Before Walmart came into town, this is where I would go to browse NES games. 😢
