Woolworths shut its doors in the U.K. last week, sending many into a frenzy of nostalgia and bargain shopping. What now-closed store or chain do you wish was still open?
The old Downtown Lazarus in Columbus.
Many were the times I ate with Nana at the Chintz Room, followed by book/toy shopping on the upper levels.
I recall when we hosted 4 Japanese exchange students for a week that we took them to the western themed restaurant in the basement, where we had the good fortune of having a Japanese speaking waitress who helped us better communicate.
And I always loved our trips to Columbus during the holiday season, since Lazarus always had animatrocic displays set up.
