Do You Remember These Long Gone '00s Retail Stores?
1. Contempo Casuals (2001)
The best place (besides maybe Merry Go Round) to shop for Z. Cavarricis and Skidz.
2. Warner Bros. Store (2001)
All the Marvin the Martian and Looney Tunes merch a kid could ever want.
3. Sharper Image (2008)
The best place for picking up sort of useless electronic gadgets and "back massagers."
4. Sam Goody (2006)
Where you bought you copies of Avril Lavine's "Skater Boi" on cassingle and the latest Marilyn Manson CD.
5. Tower Records (2006)
Yes, they had a superior CD collection, but what Tower really dominated at was magazines. So many weird, obscure, slightly naughty magazines. Where else were you going to buy the latest issues of The Face and Raygun anyway?
6. K B Toys (2009)
Everybody's favorite place to buy Pokemons and Furbys and Tomagotchis, right behind Toys R Us, anyway.
7. Anchor Blue (2011)
Anchor Blue was the place to go for a wacky Ed Hardy-esque graphic tee and inoffensive lightweight flannels.
8. Linens 'N Things (2008)
Your mom's favorite place to drag you after soccer practice so she could buy dish towels. They still have a (kinda sad) website.
9. Arden B (2014)
Was everything in the store made from spandex? Yes, yes it was.
10. Delia's (2014)
Hear that? That's the sound of a billion teen girls crying over flared jeans and fashion cargo pants.
11. Fashion Bug (2013)
I've got the bug. THE FASHION BUG!
12. Circuit City (2008)
Yup, your dad's fave store ever.
13. Tweeter (2008)
Your dad's other favorite store.
14. B. Dalton Bookseller (2010)
That place where you bought all the Harry Potter books.
15. Borders (2011)
And the place where your mom bought her copy of 50 Shades of Gray.
16. Natural Wonders (2004)
The perfect spot to grab a new microscope, or geode, or book about minerals or meteorites. Or, you know, a miniature triceratops figurine.
17. Blockbuster Video (2014)
Remember when you rented Titanitc on double VHS tapes? YEAH that was a time.
