I have some Gold Circle crayons. Their logo is Gold, then a G inside a C, then Circle. Based in Cleveland, Ohio.

I loved Gold Circle!  It was well-maintained and had a great variety of stuff and some really good sales.  I didn't think much at the time that it closed since the shopping center was going through a renovation and had no idea that the chain was going out of business.

Does anyone have any info on when this chain folded or any links where I can find out more info?

I found a Gold Circle basket being used to hold tapes at my Salvation Army. Nothing special, just a red basket with "GOLD CIRCLE" on it.

My aunt worked for Gold Circle for a long time, then it closed and became a Hills, and later became the Ames that I worked at.  We both left before the store went out of business for good though.  So she worked for three different stores in the same building.

Was browsing the Gold Circle page on Wikipedia and came across this location in Columbus, OH. Note the sign in the window - "Hills: Coming Soon".

All I remember from Gold Circle is that they had the buildings with the very tall front entrances and the shingled roofs, and that a majority of them became Hills stores. The one by Parmatown Mall - after it was a GC or, maybe, after it was Hills and closed for some reason - was next to a Finast, which TOOK OVER its store and built a colossal store inside, with a very futuristic-looking-at-the-time exterior. All I vaguely remember about that store was the tall glass entrance and, I think, "Finast super store" being written in white against a painted black facade.

The one in Middleburg Heights that became a Hills also seemed very tall, and I remember two things: the Stop-n-Style hair salon in the front, and the fact that the toy section in the back was behind a wall that separated it from whatever section was next to it.

If that was the Gold Circle way, then the one in Elyria, OH, became a Kmart store that was stuck in the 1970s (so, it closed early in its run as a GC?) with the brown and orange signage and the tiny cafe in the front.

So many memories that I forgot I had...
