I grew up in Melrose Park near 15th and Division; Teadori's (sp?)
Lounge, Yamo's Grocery at 15th and Division, Toranto's market at 18th and Division. There was also a neighborhood store somewhere around 22nd or 23rd a few blocks north of Lake St...what WAS their name??...they sold Chum GUM!!. Also remember Cock Robin's at 14th and Lake, Jane Adams school,which I suppose is still there. It's hard to stop because reading the forum just takes you back so quickly! Also: In Winston Plaza...Brown's t.v. repair in the arcade area, a record store who's name I don't recall. Neisner's, Madigans (my first job), and Newberry's, with a basement area and a real soda fountain.
