From time to time, as the world around us changes, we all get those moments of feeling nostalgic and wanting what "used to be" because familiar things/places just feel more comfortable. So many things have come and gone, especially hometown businesses. I was thinking about that for the City of Oneonta...what businesses have come and gone over the years and what ones do people miss most? So I put the question "What Oneonta business would you like to see revived?" out on the WZOZ Facebook page recently and got plenty of answers!
