I remember the hot-dogs.....my mother would always buy us kids the hot-dogs at the entrance before we went shopping. They were the best.
I remember my sister and I being able to wonder around the store looking at the clothes and makeup, while my mother took the other kids into the food area...
I remember the conveyor belts the food was put on behind the cashier. My mother would get a round "token" and take it outside, where the boys would load up our groceries from the numbered buckets... It was very innovative for its time...a super Wal-Mart, before it was even thought of. Everything you needed was in one store. Now, this was many many years ago. Probably about 38-40 years now.
