7 Stores That Anyone Who Grew Up In Kansas City Will Undoubtedly Remember

Do you remember when you didn’t have video games in your home and when everyone didn’t have to have the internet to survive? If we wanted new clothes or groceries, we had to brave the sea of people outside and go to the store ourselves. Some stores were favorites, and others we only tolerated, but these stores in Kansas City are a part of every family who has lived here. Whether they’re closed or not, we’ll remember them always.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Big box stores and online shopping take their toll on so many businesses, but that doesn’t mean we can’t remember the good times we had when they were still open and thriving.
