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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

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.
