where you used to buy stuff

If you have a hobby, are there stores where you used to buy stuff that no longer exist? Here are mine. For the record, as many of you know, I am a Barbie doll collector.
Ames
Children's Palace/Child World
Gold Circle
K & K Toys
Meijer Square
Mercantile (McAlpin's et al)
Service Merchandise
Swallen's in Cincinnati
Toys R Us
Van Leunen's in Cincinnati
Woolworth
Zayre
Kmart is still hanging on but there are none near me any more. I expect it to disappear by the end of the year
Sears is still hanging on but there are none near me any more, and the stores don't sell toys any more. I expect it to disappear by the end of the year.
Elder-Beerman is still in existence but there are none near me and it doesn't sell toys any more.
Macy's is still in existence but there are none near me any more and it doesn't sell toys any more.
JC Penney is still in existence but the one near me is useless and it doesn't sell toys any more. I expect it to disappear by the end of the year.
Ontario was out of business by the time I started collecting.
