When I was a kid, my dad and I used to make many trips to a store called TSS which stands for “Time Square Stores”. I remember them having a clothing department, sporting goods department, tobacco section, toy department, a candy shop and a music store called “Record World”. My pops used to spend a lot of time in Record World; bought many 45 records. I remember the toy section. Lots of bikes and board games. You could say it is similar to Wal-Mart, but looking back it felt like it was slightly more upscale. Sadly, most of these stores were closed by late 1989 and completely gone by 1990. After that we had to rely solely on “Green Acres Mall” in Valley Stream, NY.
