“Colonial Mall [Staunton Mall] — Augusta, Virginia”

Ryan’s, Staunton, VA (closed ????)

Ryan's, Staunton, VA (closed ????)

I don’t know when this closed. The ones in Newport News and Suffolk closed like in 2003-ish, so maybe that’s when this one closed too.

I remember when I went to Ghetto Kee Business College, the school would treat us once a month to a meal at Ryans, and the food was always overcooked or bland.
It’s tucked sorta in front of walmart.

1992 or 1993 Central Fidelity Commercial

Filed under: commercials,dead chains,Farm Fresh — Anita @ 3:09 pm

This is from when mom taped Troop Beverly Hills for me one night in January of 1992, I think.

Check out all the old Farm Freshes in the Central Fidelity Commercial! Now no Farm Freshes have banks…right? I know the bank in the Smithfield location closed down a few years back.

Also notice the other local ads. Is elephantsgalore still open? The only results I found were vague city search pages. However, it looks like The Paneling Factory is still open.
