Remember in the great movie Mean Girls, when Rachel McAdams's character (who has unwittingly been fed a bunch of carb-packed fitness bars for weeks) is at one of those petite-clothes mall boutiques looking for a prom outfit? The shop girl tells her, "Sorry, we only carry sizes 1, 3 and 5. You could try Sears." That might be what the young people these days call a sick burn, but not to us. Now that the old Macy's downtown is a construction site, Sears at Wheeler and Richmond is the only old-school department store still open in the Inner Loop, dating all the way back to 1939. The store's escalator, the first of its kind in the state of Texas, still works. So does the rest of "Fort Sears," stocking goods from men's and women's clothes and shoes to lawn mowers and treadmills to throw pillows and kitchenware, to the tune of some 55,000 customers a year. That's nothing to look down on at all.
