Is Advance the surviving five-and-dime?

I reveal my age by referring to Kresege as a five-and-dime store in this day of dollar stores where things cost more then $1.

Still, I found this comparison of Advance and AdvanceInternet (and its new to Kresege and Kmart on/ worth reading.

Perhaps it is because I know the day is coming when some will remember newspapers with the same fondness I reserve for Kresege with its aisles of simple choices - the eight colors of thread, not 15 shades of blue; a few boxed games for children, not an entire store of toys and socks galore as long as black or white will suffice.
