I remember Bowl-Mor, I used to go with my dad when he was in a league and I would take all his quarters to play the video games. I also remember and miss Big Bear and Randalls and what about the Round Up -- I remember they used to have line dancing lessons there. I don't remember what was where the Bakery is now, but I was working for they Dutch Oven bakery when they moved to that location from their old one -- at first I didn't like it, but where they are now is much nicer.
Anderson's market was always great too. Didn't we have a Dairy Sweet or something like that in East Boone somewhere - like on East Mamie Eisenhower or something. I vaguely remember an ice cream/restaruant place out there somewhere.
Oh, and the old Hotel Holst (where Bank of the West & Rose Hubby's offices are now) - I never got to go inside it, but I know many who were sad to see it go.

How about the Holst Hotel and the Daniel Boone Lounge? In the early/mid 60's my mom got her hair fixed in the basement of the hotel. I'd go up to the coffee shop and get a glass of chocolate milk and a doughnut while she was there.
Later, in the early 70's Chuck Wilson opened the Colonial Kitchen there. I think He relocated from near where ecksteins Diamonds was located. That restraunt burned down. Later he moved his restraunt from the Holst to where the Bid-a-wee was located acrossed from the old Boone News Republican Building and the KWBG Radio Station was.
The Holst Hotel later was where the Railroad guys would stay when they got into town. I remember the condom machine in the bathroom where someone scrawled "don't buy this gum---it tastes like rubber" I drowned my sorrows many times in the DB.

was something that started with a "sch - schmidts, or schlits or somesuch. Can't remember.

The old A & W had coney's that even beat out the ones Lynn's Lounge puts out today!

There was a Dairy Sweet out on East Mamie.
I haven't seen the Cookie Jar mentioned on here, or how about Maggies?

How about all the mom and pop stores around the neighborhoods. I can remember going to Furgys and Reinhardts.

Freds Skelly station on 22nd and Linn. Pop for a dime, a reach in display case with gazillions of different types of candy, an old rech in ice cream freezer with just barely frozen pushup pops that were juuuuusssstttt right

Remember Happy Day's? It was in the lot that is now empty beside the Taco John's. Our first night in Boone after we moved here, we went there to eat & hamburgers were 39 cents each & cheeseburgers were 49 cents each. They were small but they were good. They closed in 1995 I believe.

I miss the Remember Me Fleece shop uptown also.

This town is missing a good needleworks store. There is one in Waverly that has been thriving for almost 20 years.
