Even thought this may not be a store, but if I was the CEO of Six Flags I'd bring back Six Flags Astroworld in Houston, TX and buy Darien Lake back!

I would bring back Fisher's Big Wheel and build them in small towns (3 stores would be in Stafford, CT, Barkhamsted and Canaan, CT).

Wait, I'd reopen 'The Great American Train Store', that mall based model train store...

Why Fisher Big Wheel?   When I was with Ames we were going head-to-head with them in every small
town where we could, because they had proven to be not-very-adept competition.

After having exited the market 20 years ago, Dunkin Donuts is back with a vengeance.
They've opened stores all over Pittsburgh.

One defunct mall chain that I've found myself missing is Waldenbooks.  Would be nice if they got another chance, although I understand why they went under.

town where we could, because they had proven to be not-very-adept competition.

Fishers Big Wheel was in my opinion was underrated. I'd also bring back a few others - Sage-Allen, Brown Thompson's, G. Fox for Department Stores, Bradlees, Zayre, Jamesway and Mammoth Mart (love the logo) for discount stores, H.B.Davis (for a catalogue showroom), Savitt for jewelry, Grand Union, Top Notch and Popular for supermarkets and Lionel Toys for toys (and trains).

I would bring back Prange Way, because they mean as much to Wisconsin as Hills or Ames did to the east coast.

I could see Mister Donut making a comeback on the west coast where there are substantial Asian populations.

I'd like to see Lechmere and Heartland Food Warehouse come back. Neither will, of course, for obvious reasons.

Kay-Bee Toys/Toy Works - I have memories of going to K-B and Toy Works, along with Toys "R" Us in my youth. I bought many toys in those stores in my youth.

Hot 'n Now - A chain of drive thru only fast-food hamburger restaurants renowned for their low-priced hamburgers and cheeseburgers.
