None of your fancy Starbucks here. Just helium balloons on the glass ceiling.

2. The fountain outside never actually had any water in it

Now, it’s sadly just a big pile of dirt.

3. You still miss the big Roches and Crazy Prices

They were the finest in the country.

4. You’ve definitely got lost and had to have your name called over the speakers

There are too many floors, it’s not your fault.

The lucky kids would make it this far to play on the lane.

5. You wouldn’t stay still until you got a slushie from the stand on the first level
