Texas has always been an exciting state, there is always something going on or something to do in the lone star state. It has been that way for a long time but back in the 1990’s it seemed like life was so much fun. We had so much new technology that was available to us for the first time. But unfortunately, not everything from back in the 1990s is still around anymore, and we miss some of those retail stores now.  


While the internet has made life a lot easier for us now, back in the day we used to love to visit some of our favorite retail stores as a reason to get out of the house. Often as teenagers we would go to a store just to see what new fun things they had to sell us, it was fun to play with the newest toys in the store.  

Those Stores Have Been Replaced Now 

Mostly due to poor business decisions we have seen some of our favorite retail stores close their doors for good. The internet has changed how we shop for things, we don’t need to go to the store anymore, we can just have the items we need delivered to our home now. But some of us still miss some of those retail stores we used to visit.  

Let’s Look at Some Stores We Miss 

Here is a look at just a few of the retails stores we miss that were open for business here in Texas in the 1990s.
