I had never heard of several of these and was surprised to hear a few names I knew were long gone...
Among those listed I loved going to and would still shop if they existed today, the ones in bold I miss the most:
Warner Bros stores (there was a outlet location near my base when I was in the Army once, I got all kinds of stuff there. I even met Mel Blanc, the cartoon voice guy, at one of their stores many years a go, a memory I cherish today).
KB Toys. I love toy stores. Don't know why.
Toys R Us.
Circuit City, even though their customer service was the worst.
B. Dalton Books. I love good bookstores!
Borders Books & Music. I really miss this chain!
Radio Shack, for those rare times I needed electronic stuff. When I was building my model railroad layout, I bought a lot of my wiring stuff there just as the last local store was closing, in 2014...
