Re: Hills

The Hills here never went to ames. they just closed up and eventually burlington moved in. There was an Ames behind Westmoreland mall that was a Zayre before that.

Re: Extinct Supermarket Merchandise

Talk about extinct, I thought this thread was as well. Apparently Steakums are making a comeback. And I noticed Mothers Flaky Flix is back as well.

I came across some photos on another forum that I am a part of. If I am permitted I will post a link to this particul...
