    I agree with your feelings about the Sears and Kmart closings. When I was young, my parents would shop at the Kmart a lot on College Ave. in Appleton, Wi. My Aunt worked there as a sales lady, so it was always fun to see her there. Then we would venture sometimes to the deli, and my dad would buy us all a submarine sandwich or a pudding cup, while my mom would finish up with the shopping. Man, those were the BEST subs ever! Subway doesn’t even compare to how good they tasted. Very sad to say that place closed in the ’90’s along with Prange Way (another retail store). It’s lot still sits empty, with grass shooting up among the cracks. Prange Way turned into a car lot. Sigh. At least I have those wonderful memories.

      Ahhh, thanks for sharing that, Mary…you paint a picture of an idyllic era that is gone and won’t be coming back…..and I didn’t know that Kmart ever had a deli that sold subs….sounds amazing, the way you describe them!
