I was so sad on Sunday.  That place held so many memories for me.  As a little girl, my mom would take my brothers and sister and I to Foleys during Christmas time, to look at the window displays. It was a ritual for us, every year.  Then, to support myself through U of H, I worked at Foleys for six years, until I graduated.  I remember the old LC Cafeteria in the basement and watching the parades from inside the store, when I was working (or supposed to be) Good times were had there, for sure.
