Place has been closed for AGES, but OH the memories!

I remember as a kid, parents taking me there for a toy racetrack I had at the time, to buy a couple of more vehicles to run on it back in the 70's, before my teens... it was a neat place... no other "major" places to buy toys in this area at the time... now the old building is "up in flames". Even though it's been closed for a couple of decades, it was a Monroe landmark. Monroe fire chief thinks it had to be deliberately set. Hope they catch the asshat that did it!
