Hills Department Stores always smelled like mustard and overcooked hot dogs. The snack bar at the front of each location was instant customer repellent, a concession stand teeming with health code violations. But as a kid, that store was like drugs. So many toys, so many toys. Pictured above: Al Leko and Jim McCollough, managers from Hills Department Store (#44) in Benwood, West Virginia.
