The Almost Complete List All Vintage & Old Store Locations in the Country.

(THESE ARE NOT MY PICTURES AND I THANK THOSE THAT TOOK THEM FOR ME TO USE)

          In modern society today, everything is changing, stores are closed and remodeled, people grow up and change, and what is considered of in urbanophile eyes is preserved by national preservation organizations and treated like tourist attractions and museum quality showpieces. In chains of store and restaurants that are still in operation today have individual locations that are older than others, or more well scene as locations that are cooler than others based on this principle, most common are the old Federated and May Company stores across the country that still wear there individual trademarks the particular companies had to make them stand out over the competition, and are still scene in various locations even thought a red star is slapped over it.

          In other chains cases, like Kmart, the original Kmart location in Garden City, Michigan is still open and does business everyday, that store opened in 1962, some of the stores that opened in 2002, closed a year later because of the bankruptcy, that store was spared, because that brand might be treating this store like a flagship, its the first and oldest, and near where the old Headquarters was in Troy, Michigan. Other Kmart stores like in South Burlington, Vermont and in Watertown, Connecticut still have the old 1960's to early 1970's logo, although the one in Vermont just changed to the modern motif as of late last year, which will be noted in the list below.

          Sears is one of my favorites because as this point in there never ending downward spiral in business decisions, there are so many stores that look completely different from others, that goes for Kmart to I guess. There are stores that are open today that are a far between opening in the early 1950's to just opening in 2005. And across the country, from California to New Jersey, and many points in between, this can be scene as something of a marvel, how stores listed below range from opening dates, to style and design, to store signage, and location. 

          That is what this is really about, other people take vacations to see national treasures, deserts and museum, going hundreds of miles to see a Sears that is one of a kind, is a vacation to me, for example, because I am in Texas in the summer, so there is beautiful weather, I am in a hotel, and I have a goal to send time with friends somewhere that makes me happy, and feel good to be alive!

          Without further ado, I present the almost complete list of what I have found to be most of all the locations of vintage and retro stores and restaurants of chains around the country.

This is a great post, its an album and a log of various locations of chains and stores that somehow have stood the test of test, and wear the signage as the day it was hung.

This post will continuously change and be updated.
