While I don’t harbor any nostalgia for Osco, the ‘70s-style fixtures at this Ranch Mart location give me childhood flashbacks. The drug store chain, as with Eckerd before it, will soon convert to the CVS brand name. Skaggs and the locally-based Katz stores have also fallen by the wayside or been absorbed in drug store corporate mergers. How about a moment of silence for Kansas City's departed retailers, from Milgram’s grocery stores to Kresge (now Kmart/Sears)? Maybe someone could compile lists of our defunct toy stores, book stores, and record stores.
