Life evolves at such a fast pace that we’ll likely soon consider shopping malls “vintage,” strolling down Memory Lane on the rare occasions that we visit them in lieu of online shopping. When we want to step back in time these days, however, we merely need to visit Wanamakers General Store in Pennsylvania, one of the state’s oldest general stores.
