20 Throwback Companies That I Miss More than My Ex

We've got all the department stores, restaurants, and companies from the '80s, '90s, and '00s!

Alright, I'll admit it. I love living in the past. Everything (and I mean everything) was better back then. Instead of TikTok we had Tamagotchis. Instead of Elden Ring we had Men in Black. Instead of NFTs we had craft lizards made out of ribbon and beads.

And I don't care if you think that stuff is lame. You're probably lame. The point is growing up in the '90s was hands down the best time to be a kid. Whether it was stealing tic-tacs from Ames department store, or meeting friends after school at Aladdin's Castle Arcade in the mall. It was just the best.

So thanks to my stellar memory and obsession with nostalgia, I've collected 20 of the coolest, now defunct companies that we wish would make a comeback.

I'm well aware that there is a reason these companies failed in the first place. This would be purely for nostalgia purposes and nothing more. So take a walk down memory lane and see how many of these you remember.
