Yes, Zemsky's did replace the Leader Store on W.18th St. But is now a more homogenized Family Dollar store.

I remember that place, Especially the somewhat BW/ Red color print sales paper that was supplied each weekend by the Sun-Times or Tribune. Plus I remember the Advance Sales Co on N.Milwaukee, Which closed in 1975.

That place was a treasure & classically bewildering. Wasn't as open space-indoors. It was let's say cluttered aisle to aisle. Unlike most stores had a more open space ceiling atmosphere. This place was different from most other stores.

It used to be a rather pleasant area, But with the realty/redevelopment behemoths, It didn't change for the better. It could give some futureshock.

Somebody I knew owned the Community on Chicago nr Paulina. But closed it in 1973. Then became a Manneheim furniture store until it had 2 fires in 1978. One in Jan or Feb-Which was small. But the one in Oct was big, Then was demolished a year later. Now it's a Walgreens. But actually don't know if that location will stand any longer. Since the Chicago Av shopping distict is molting little by little

That DOES bring back some memories. I probably think they were removed because of age, potential vandalism, budget problems, etc.

I don't think the place was at 102 S.Cicero. It was more like 5500-5900 S.
