How I remember the great Department stores in the 50’s in the city I grew up in! On the avenue there was many but the ones I remember most was: Woolworth’s there was three of them.
A Kress Department store was there as was a Sears Department store built-in the 1930’s, a few blocks from the avenue that had three floors and great products for the home and there was Holthausens Department store on the avenue a few blocks from one of the Woolworth’s stores..
There was the Mickey Finns Department store downtown that sold all kinds of housewares and clothing at good prices.
And in the late 50’s They build a new 2 guys from Harrison Department store that sold everything. All these great stores from my 50’s are gone now. Sears is at the mall. Wish it was the 50’s again!
