Probably because I have a lot of memories of going into the basement of the North Shore Mall with my mom, trying to find good gifts and discounts. I'll probably make a trek soon for memories and discounts.
So it's been real, Filene's Basement. My Beantown pride is sad because this is one less Boston-based department store that exists. (I still am bitter about you, Macy's, for taking Filene's away from us)
Also, I'm a little pissed off I'll never have the option to compete in the Running of the Brides.
