Tower records! Loved browsing in there for new records. It was almost an icon here but long and closed now.
Another was Gunther's Ice Cream! Only one store left and it's a long ways away. Best Ice cream and Shakes ever!
Maybe with the resurgence of vinyl again? Some record stores will make a come back but I doubt it with Amazon and Walmart around.

I knew about Tower Records without ever going there. It is rare when a record shop can become world famous like that.

There was a hardware store in the town closest to me, it was old and had many items the box stores dont carry. Old window hardware, odd screw sizes and threads, and like your photo, plumbing connections, etc. And...i didnt have to drive 45 minutes to get there. Closed 4 or 5 years ago:(.

Seifert's Drug Store - It was old style. It had a long gorgeous onyx fountain counter. You could get all those old style fountain drinks. I was a kid back then, so I was into comic books and other crap - but it was just a really cool store. Even back then (60's) I knew I would miss it.

LOL
Every time I remember Woolworth's I think of that line from "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou" ... when they get banned from Woolworth's and the character asks: "Do you think he means all Woolworth's, or just this one?"

I miss being able to buy a brand new Ford T model from the local car dealership. They also had coffins to go with them.
