    No question: The original Filene's Basement. If I were to come into millions, I would see to it that this gem was restored exactly as it was.

    [QUOTE]Moxie.  Technically it still exists, but if you are old enough to have tasted it before it was reformulated you know it's nothing like the original.  An acquired taste to be sure, but truly unique.[/QUOTE]


    When I was a kid, we knew the people who bottled Moxie in Worcester.  They would get us Moxie concentrate, which we used to use as ice cream topping, and sometimes made a Moxie milkshake.  Now that is an acquired taste.   Yes, it seems it used to be much more powerful.  And it was Ted's favorite.

    I miss Lechemere Sales in Dedham before it became a chain store. It had the best stereo, TV and camera departments that were staffed by people who actually knew somethng about what they were selling. Not like today were all you find in a place like Best Buy are a bunch of kids who don't know anything about the products.

    I still miss Lechmere!!!!  I always think how much I miss it when I need to pick up a small appliance for the kitchen or a new tv.  The price and the service was outstanding...  Great store...

    I agree, Lechmere's was the store we used the most.
