Zimbal"s was on the American corner. It was the second shoppe. First was Sonne Brothers jewelers then you went up some stairs to Zimbals. They did run numbers out of there. Fanny Farmers was about 5 stores down.

I can't think of the name of the guys clotes store that was in freedom mall and also in the Old Price Chopper. I think his name may have been Joe but can't remember the name of his place. There was also a health food store next to the guys clothes store and a shoe store I think called shoe works owned by the Williams family...how I miss those days!
