Re: TG&Y

TG&Y was similar to a Sprouse-Reitz, but larger. I remember lots of them in North Orange County CA. My cousin worked at one in the Riverside/Corona area. There was a TG&Y in Corona back in the 1970s. It was located at the northern end of the Corona Plaza shopping center on Main Street. I think the ...
