This is a slideshow of pictures from a Disney Store location that closed a while ago.... It's really sad to look at, but also brings back memories of five wonderful years I worked in this store. One of the lowest volume stores in the chain, but very large square footage.. proudly remained open for 13 years. It will be very interesting to see the direction the stores take with Steve Jobbs spear heading the new Imagination Park concept / redesign of all stores. I still think the Pink and Green stores were truly reminiscent of the parks- unlike the new hospital glow "Mickey" designs and the earlier "Castle" and "Millenium" designs of the early 200's.

I have heard from a cast member that the company is considering launching new store locations in some areas (such as in S.F., where there were once 3 stores- and there are now zero)... Has anyone heard anythign about this? The Disney Store president has a twitter account which he has hinted some things on, ... not sure if he's just saying that to please people or if he means it... Anyhow....
I will always hold dear the memories of working for The Disney Store. It used to be an extremely awesome place to work (prior to TCP take over- and they closed my store for the Disney takeback...)
