I vaguely remember seeing these back in the day, but we had some listeners call in this morning and share their horror stories about them being used. Watch the commercial, and ask yourself why anyone would have ever bought this?
I don't exactly remember how it came up this morning on The Breakfast Club, but we started talking about the old Pamida stores. I remember the one in Virginia, MN. Cathy remembers the one in Cloquet, and not long ago there was one in Two Harbors. Some of the Pamida's were bought out by Shopko, but there are still some out there.
The Palace Theater opened in Superior Wisconsin back in 1917. It operated as a theater until 1982, when it was then used as a church. Not long later it became vacant. The city took possession of it, and it ultimately was demolished in 2006. This video tour was taken before it was demolished, and shows what the Palace Theater had become.
