The one store I haven't seen mentioned is "Community Discount". It was on North Ave and I think 9th?

How about getting your haircut in the basement of the Bosen's (1500 block of 17th) or at the Popes house on 18th and Norwood.

Ever get your fill of grapes waiting for your pizza while sitting in the arbor outside of Teodori's Lounge?

How about a Double Cheeseburger from Stuffy's across from the Igloo pm Lake. Stuffy was one of the nicest counterfeiters (or people) I've ever met!

Was it located on the corner?
I grew up in Nortn Maywood, lived there for about 21yrs, then moved to Melrose. Been here 17 yrs. I have seen alot of great businesses gone, but not forgotten.
Do you remember the little grocery store on Chicago Ave? It was located between 6th & 7th. Owned by an older gentleman named Herb. As kids, we used to go there all the time, it is now apartments.
This is great, just thinking about the good ole days, thanks everyone for your input...keeping my mind alive!!:-)
I worked there when I was 12. Many years ago 1975 I think. Herb was a nice man. That job taught me many life lessons I was not aware of at the time.

I loved going to Lorraine's Records. That's where you could pick up the WLS Silver Dollar Survey and WCFL survey and stroll through the aisles buying your favorite 45's.

Winston Plaza in the 60's/70's:
Millionaire's Club/Holloway House
American Handicrafters/Lee Wards
Dominicks AND Jewel, almost right next to each other
Wm. A. Lewis, where the models buy their clothes!
Fanny May
Sandy's
Lorrain's
Troy
Newberry's w/luncheonette
Walgreens w/luncheonette
Three Sisters
Lerner
JC Penney
Bakers Shoes (somewhere in there)
Neisners w/luncheonette
Madigan's JR
The best Madigans store on the planet
Penneys, Newberry's and Neisners had basement levels. I remember Newberrys having escalators, but I think Penney's and Neisners just had stairs.
