Do you guys remember Wilson's? It was kind of like Service Merchandise. Service Merchandise actually replaced Wilsons in my city....

I remember them having a good Mego display, and everything else back in the day....

I remember there were a number of what they used to call "catalog showrooms" back in the day - Wilson's, Masters, Leeds and the one that outlasted them all, Service Merchandise. Leeds always had the best toys and models to my memory. Wilson's liquidated there merchandise before they went under and I think I still have some packaged Marvel Secret Wars figures with there stickers on them. Ours was bought out byService Merchandise too and they stayed in business until Service tanked around 1996.
