The Memory Mall was always a thrill! My wife and I stopped by whenever we had a chance. Always had a thrill hearing the latest jazz Mrs. Gustke had to share. Whether we bought anything or not, she had a kind word and a smile. She was a rare specimen, no doubt about it!

I'm 53. I remember my parents taking me to Gustke's "five and dime" to pick out a present for my 5th birthday. There were toys, knick knacks and just about anything a kid could want. It was the most wonderful shop in the world in the eyes of a little girl. No kid ever felt that way in a Walmart. Thank you Mrs. Gustke.
