Comment of the Day: Fondly Remembered Mall Stores

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We listed ten stores that, back in the day, seemed to be in every mall you ever went to: places like Chess King and Merry-Go-Round. We asked readers to add to the list, and they came through.

DJ's. The girls all dressed like sluts and were really friendly. Worked like a charm for me as a teenager. God knows how much Girbaud and Guess crap I bought because of 'em.
