  •  I remember... (5+ / 0-)

    spending many Friday and Saturday evenings at Pickwick with my husband in the early 1960s.  It was a great place to browse and find a gem among the used books.  We were a young couple of teachers with very little money and no TV.  A visit to Pickwick was always one of our favorite ways to spend an evening!

    It was sad to see it go...like so many other special places pushed out by mergers, the public's changing tastes and the economy.
