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.

I remember GC well.  My aunt worked there, and the Ames that I worked at was a GC, then Hills, and then Ames.

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...
