I miss the Almy's lunch counter, Jerry's Army & Navy for useful stuff and Daniel Low's for fancy gift items.

Feed Your Head Books! They may have been short-lived, but it was such an amazing independent book/zine store that was really into local art and community, even supporting the local youth scene with basement punk shows. Unfortunately, community involvement is not always a profitable business model. If I could have just one store back, Feed Your Head would be it.

I remember going there when they opened to buy something to support them, I wish they had lasted as they were a very interesting store with a lot of non mainstream reading.

I wish I could remember the name of the store, since I went there first for every present I was looking for, but I can't... it sold both new and vintage things, and was where the Doggie store is now on Washington Street.
