Used to walk to this Sears store with my mother and little brother...

they had the coolest pneumatic message system thoughout with pipes running up from the sales counters and then along the ceiling. Also one our favorite things was to go stand in the x-ray box in the shoe department and look through the viewer and see the bones of our feet inside our shoes. Honest. Hard to believe they had such things but they did and they were enormously entertaining to a seven year old.
