Yes, but I don't remember the name of it originally. It became a Roos Brother's store, and then a Roos/Atkins store, before it moved away. I believe that it was in the Flood Building that housed the five and dime at the corner of Powell and Market. That was a big one also, and it had two floors.

There were lots of little stores and offices in the upstairs and I remember having to go to a dentist's office there, only to find out too late that my father had sent me to an extractionist. The shoe store was part of a bigger store and I do remember the x-ray machine and I don't seem to have caught any of the problems that came with it.
