I remember shopping at the 3539 W 26th street store, growing up. Seemed like everything in the store was priced with "0.88". ($1.88, $5.88, $10.88, etc) I also remember how the employees would all be on the floors, and there would always be that one, that would follow you. Bought alot of nice things there though.

Joe Singer Shows? Was that on 26th & Christiana? Homan? I remember a shoe shop that had a red-headed woman that worked there. There was a man also. I think he walked with a limp? One leg was shorter than the other? Very friendly people. Always greeted us at the door. I don't remember the clothing store and I graduated from McCormick School in 1976.

I grew up on 28th & Christiana. Right down the street from Goldblatt's. Me and my sibblings were called "Goldblatt Baby's". Every employee in that store, knew my family. I remember their sidewalk sales. My dad brought home eight brand new Schwinn Bikes. I spent alot of time down in the basement. In the record shop and eating pizza. Loved that store!

My mom played bingo there also. It was called St. Joes when my kids played their basketball games there about eight-nine years ago. They had the public and catholic leagues that played against each other. The old stage was still there and the building was deffinitely being neglected. The place was literally falling apart. Drove past it recently and the place is closed down.
