Share a memory or story about a place along Lake Street.

Featured Memory:

Sears Building 
In the '60 and 70's my mother, raised in the Depression, was one of those women who would drive 10 miles to save 5 cents on a can of beans. So even though she was a St. Paulite, it wasn't unusual for her to cross the river to Kaplan's on Franklin Ave. or to Sears on Lake Street to buy clothes at a discount price. I remember driving up to Sears and thinking we had reached the Emerald City because of the green neon sign and the building that loomed up to the clouds. With 5 small children in tow, my mother would navigate the sale racks and swat us when we knocked them over in our game of hide 'n seek.
I ate lunch in the Midtown Global Market recently. I could still remember where the dress department was situated.
I miss the green neon sign.
... Ruby Rose Wilson, St. Paul
