10 Stores That Anyone Who Grew Up In Louisville Will Undoubtedly Remember

This might come as a shock to some of our younger readers, but back in the day, there was no such thing as shopping online. If you wanted to buy something, you had to actually get in the car and head out for the store (crazy, right?). Usually, though, that day of shopping was really an experience: maybe you found something you didn’t know you were looking for, or your little sister had a complete meltdown in the baby food aisle while your mom was trying to pick out groceries. Either way, you came home with a story to tell. Some of the best stories in town came from these ten stores, which Louisvillians all remember fondly, even in this new age of technology.
