This was originally known as the "Retail Archives" but never really took off the way I wanted to. Rather, it looks at individual retail chains. I dug this section up partly because I wanted to add more stuff, plus I liked what I saw at this old Geocities page, which includes some rare photos not seen elsewhere.
