Remember When These Businesses Existed In Great Falls?
Businesses No Longer Open In Great Falls
Each year sadly businesses will close, it's just the way capitalism works in America.
There are lots of reasons a business can close, from shifting customer preferences to easy of online shopping making brick and mortar stores obsolete, and Great Falls businesses are not immune from this.
Some businesses close and we might not even notice they have gone away until months later.
Others, once they close they leave a hole in our community that can go years before we finally come to accept it.
Let's go down memory lane and take a look back at 3 businesses that I feel Great Falls still is missing today.
This business is the one that I miss the most and I have a feeling most people would agree.
The ease of media streaming has made it so not just Hastings, but businesses like Musicland (later Sam Goody), Hollywood Video and Blockbuster have all closed in Great Falls.
When I first moved to Great Falls and was just getting started in my radio career a bag of burgers fed me for pretty cheap.
When kids used to cruise up and down Central Ave this was the place to gather and socialize for many youth in Great Falls.
This one might not be the most missed business in Great Falls, but speaking for myself, as a bit of a techno-geek, I miss it in the mall.
These are just a few stores that are no longer part of Great Falls, and while we know nothing lasts forever, that doesn't mean we can't be sad they are no longer around.
