That is something I really do miss. Way back when when department stores also had a resturant in them.

Back before the Dayton-Hudson Target corporation underwent a massive restructuring, I used to work at one of those restaurants. There were some very talented cooks working there, and some excellent food put out. And a great value, as well. This would've been like 1994-95, IIRC.

I delivered the newspaper to our local Woolworths.
They were good tippers and I never went hungry.
That was about 1967 or 68.
Those were the good old days.

Yep. We had a Woolworth's in town until maybe the mid '80's. The kept the lunch counter almost up to the point when they closed. I can remember going in there with my mother and grandmother as a kid for lunch in the summer time.

Memories. :)

The town I grew up in had several drug stores, locally owned. The one my parents went to was Parker Drug, a Rexall franchise. They had a lunch counter and I used to eat there when I worked at the hardware store (also locally owned) around the corner. My favorite lunch was 2 grilled cheeses with a chocolate milkshake. Had two friends that worked at the lunch counter, they used to compete to see who could make the best shake. The other alternative was a cheeseburger dressed and a shake. At the time I was fit and active, the calories from the shake every day was no issue. Those were the days (~1980).
