    KB and TRU were sadly, both well after my time.

    All we had to look forward to was the Christmas Wish Book from Sears and Robuck.

    Oh I know all about the Sears Christmas Catalogs. I'd cut out the pictures of the stuff I wanted and paste them on my letter to Santa every year.

    Anyone remember Red Goose shoes? Growing up, one of the locally owned clothing stores carried them.

    While we weren't overly excited to get new shoes, what you wanted was the opportunity to get a Golden Egg from the goose. You never knew what was going to be inside. The egg itself could also be used as a bank.

    Founder just died: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/22/obituaries/charles-p-lazarus-toys-r-us-founder-dies-at-94.html

    He was 94, but still, given the timing I think this may have literally broken his heart. I can't find a cause of death anywhere, though.

    RIP
