(Jim Kettler here) When I was a child, we went every Saturday to a Humpty Dumpty grocery store and while my folks were shopping there, we kids went to the TG&Y "Dime Store" next door. At that time, it was still a true variety store, with a candy and nut counter, fabric by the yard, all kinds of toys, trinkets, etc. and a manager that you knew by sight. Mr. Lovely was manager back then and I later worked with his son, Lloyd when I went to work in the HQ office.

I loved the hot cashews best, but could only afford the hot redskin peanuts most of the time. Remember those? I think I must have built a couple dozen of the model cars they sold back then. What do you remember from the "Dime Store" days?

Just learned that Doyle "Buddy" Brock passed away this morning. He worked in the warehouse for 35 plus years.

Many of the people who worked at the headquarters office in Oklahoma City first worked out in the stores. Did you work in a store? Did you work in the office? How about a warehouse? Truck driver?

This only applies to those who continued employment with McCrory after TG&Y. McCrory retirement was previously handled by Samsonite but as of March 1, 2017 is being managed by Prudential. The website has been updated.
