Today Saks remains one of the most beautiful stores in the USA. They call themselves a "specialty store". Its worth a visiit from anywhere, as it still has remnants of the old days. I would like to introduce you to my blog which has postcards depicting the old major department stores across the U.
Right now I have all the stores in California. I will continue to add stores as the site tours across the U. WOW, this is truly an amazing list of department stores, thanks for sharing this list i really was in search of it I was in Saks Fifth Avenue this past weekend Carson Kressley was there and they offered some champagne and shrimp, quiche and cream puffs The world has changed I must say the sales people were helpful and very nice There was another department store in Atlanta called Regenstein's.
Unfortunately I don't know much about it but it would be interesting to find out. Later I think it became Baxter' I realize that is what i miss most about the old days Brooks now has a total of seven stores in Manhattan, NYC. Is that really necessary? I love looking back to the glory days of the department store era. I am saddened by two recent events in the world of today's department stores. The first is that many stores opened on Thanksgiving Day.
Crass, unfair, and immoral. It is simply not right. The second is the violence. Need I say more? We have become a sick society. I look back with fondness and I am frightened by the future.
Are you going to have a Lansing area book signing? If yes, please let me know when and where? Something IS in the works for Lansing.
Hello, My name is Pierre, I'm from small town in the province of Québec,Canada and i own a set of dining room furniture that i bought five years ago from our local church's Nun convent. I would like to sell this set as it does not fit my new house anymore. I'm wondering where i can post pictures of the whole package. I think people looking for antique complete sets could be interrested into it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Mais je vais laisser vos informations ici au cas où quelqu'un le voit et s'intéresse.
S'il vous plaît vérifier et voir si quelqu'un met une autre commentaire ici. Great site - especially loved the info on Crowley's, Hudson's Downtown and Jacobson's Dearborn I worked there in the '80's at the "Top of the Fountain" and in the Home Store wrapping gifts at Christmas.
You will note that, thanks to the generosity of a collector, I have included a charge card exhibit. If you would like to add to it, please send scanned. Burlington, Vermont ought to be included. They had a few leased departments, shoes, women;s hats, as well as a Music Store that sold pianos My uncle Thomas Wright, Jr could access his office via the fire escape if necessary.
I am looking for information on a riding habit made in September Anyone have any information? I searched the New York Times regarding this name and address, but came up with nothing.
Several firms were located in the building, but no reference to a "Gertz" was found. It may have been an importer or manufacturer. Perhaps someone with personal experience with the firm will see your comment and reply accordingly. Well, at least it seems you have narrowed down for me that it wasn't part of the department store. This was a habit made for Mrs Paul Mellon in September I will keep searching. What exactly did that entail? Jams, jellies, cheese-and-meat packages, or what?
Sibley's of Rochester had a full-blown but relatively high-end grocery in its stores. Gourmet shops, along with books, decorative accesories, and other unusual offerings made the great department stores places to browse, spend time, and discover, like a fair or museum, in ways that today's stores don't, and remain one of their most endearing features. I am looking for any info on Macy's Herald Sq.
In I purchased a French Hutch there. I remember it as an Antique Shop on the 9th floor. How long did it exist? The best I can do is to look and see how early ads for The Corner Shop existed. I know that I have seen postcards of the shop online. I also think that they exported that shop concept to their other divisions as well.
Please add anything you have on Orhbachs in NYC. I am looking for 'sewn-in' labels from clothing produced and sold by department stores with their labels. Men's suits and Coats, and men's ties often have labels with the department store names. Ladies clothing might -- depending how old it was. If you could post this note on your website, I'd appreciate it, and people could get in touch with you and then you could send them my address or send me their contact info.
I just wanted to mention, there was also a Jacobson's in Jacksonville, FL that closed in The building was converted to classrooms and offices for what is now Florida State College at Jacksonville. On this site, I really cut off detailed history at about , so I haven't covered the later Jacobson's. For a photo, and history of Jacobson's in Florida, you may like to see my book, Jacobson's: I Miss It So! Has anybody ever been to the Bloomingdale's in White Plains, when it first opened in ?
What was the layout of it? I wanted to thank you for this great read!! I definitely enjoying every little bit of it Smile I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post. I stubbled upon your siet and really enjoy it being that my 1st job was in a department store: Harris' in San Bernardino. I excitedly looked thru your list of stores for Harris' but it wasn't there. You may one day want to add it because it was such an icon in the Inland Empire and had an amazing beautiful building like the ones that you have posted.
Some information on the store can be found at: Hi, I was going through my grandparents stuff and found two HM Block IN indentification cards or otherwise known as credit cards. I was wondering who your specialist for credit cards is and if they would like a picture of it? If so please give me an email to contact them. I have some items to email you. How to go about it? You may use bakgraphics comcast.
First, I must say I love your blog- it brings me to the "magic" of retail back in the day! I do need to note you are missing Liberty House Hawaii, which began as H.
I saw your Liberty House listing in California, however that was not it's home base, nor where it's reputation was built. Thanks for your comment, Thomas. I plan to include Liberty House when I have access to more information about it. I have updated the directory list to reflect my intention, since I must have omitted it accidentally when I published the list. Hi there, Just wanted to say that I love this site!
I'll make sure to stop in frequently. Thought my museum of shopping bags might interest you as there are many bags from department stores. If you'd like to check it out the address is bagatellemuseum.
Again, well done--totally delightful museum! I don't believe Saks Fifth Ave was connected to Saks 34th st. Saksth was indeed related to Saks Fifth Avenue - it was a more moderately-priced clothing store, also a part of the Gimbels organization and closed in the s.
The store's branches were taken over by Gimbels at that time. Gilchrist was in downtown crossing washington street via Summer Street via Winter Street as the Corner formerly Gilchrist had cookie Marcoon yummy.
Saks Fifth Avenue and Saks 34th were affiliated in a similar way between Bullock's and Bullocks Wilshire, except that is was vice-versa in terms of class. When you have your Liberty House Hawaii exhibit, be sure to include a directory for the Ala Moana store as well as downtown Honolulu.
One store and city absent from the California list is Gottschalks E. I'd like to see an exhibit about them when opportunity calls! California's "Inland Empire" had a great store, the Harris Company. Is there anyway you know of to find which stores were in harlem and irving in ? I would check the Chicago Tribune from Most ads list store locations, and then you could compile a list. If your library doesn't have it on microfilm, many libraries do have access to the Chicago Tribune through ProQuest Historical newspapers.
I wish you well in your search. Great site, so well done and interesting. Why no mention though of Arnold Constable? Also one of the first stores to open branches. A favorite of Eleanor Roosevelt, it had started out as a high fashion mecca but evolved into a more serene old money store. Stumbled upon it while looking for info on the development of the downtown Vancouver, BC, landmark - the Woodwards building. I used to take my children there at Christmas in the 's as they had the best 'moving' window displays of anywhere!
My childhood was often spent trailing after my grandmother at the Ogilvie's in Montreal, Quebec where all the french attendees were eager to practice their english.
When you publish an exhaustive book on old defunct american dept stores, I will be in line for one. Those were two of the True Greats. Thank you Bak for creating such a magnificent site!
Off and on I have been a retail employee for over 25 years. The only reason there was to pursue a sales career at Neiman Marcus Oakbrook. For a very long time I thought I was the only person who cared about venerating the department store's of old.. Frankly I have always despised the Henry Ford idea that "History is bunk.
Skimming through the comments above I do not see the Boston Store listed as a department store which I thought it was. We had a large elite Boston Store in Madison WI which had a train that ran from the cieling of the top floor which children could ride.
That was the highlite of our christmas. Very sophisticated for a small town store. Maybe because Vassar College was nearby? Re the comment about Saks 34 being a furniture operation. The furniture chain was "Sachs" and unrelated. The had a catchy jingle of their phone number: Melrose five, five three hundred I love this website! I am looking for information on a Department store called Wow,located in Cleveland ,Ohio.
I think it was in a shopping center called Greenlight Shopping Center My siblings and I are planning a retirement party for our Mother,and that was one of her first jobs. We are really looking for a photo,but anything would be useful.
I believe it was in operation in the late 70's early 80's? I would suggest searching The Plain Dealer for information about the store. It is available online through Genealogybank. They sold clothes, television sets, radios, and record players, and records, I know that. I was last in there probably in This would be a great addition to the museum And also let me sincerely thank you for the outstanding job you have done with this site.
Words cannot express how grateful I am for existence! I may have missed it in the comments but if it has not been mentioned then I would like to add Kingsmill's Department Store on Fund as Street in London Ontario Canada to your list. Not huge but definitely a department store, four floors, great china department, large furniture floor, newly added kitchenwares, usually women's wear, small but well chosen men's shop, etc.
Founded in , current store built in Still owned and operated by fifth generation family of the founder. Not many business of any kind can say that these days. Seems to continue to be successful despite the downtown business and retail area its in having become semi abandoned. Right across the street is a failed mini mall made out of the old Simpson's department store.
When I was there last they were doing renovations on the main floor that both modernized it and restored and used many if the great wood and glass counters and show cases. With clerks actually behind these counters waiting to serve you it was almost like going through a time warp. Oh, and the brass cage elevator still has a live operator!! For collectors of places on this site this is a hidden gem. I am very familiar with Kingsmills and I do agree with you; I visited the store in January, and was surprised and gladdened to see that it was updated and expanded since I was last there in the s.
Your description is very accurate, and when lecturing about Jacobson's, when anyone asks me if there is anything like a traditional department store, i tell them to seek out Kingsmills in London, Ontario on Dundas street: Bruce Wow that's great. I think it deserves a case study as to how its managed to survive and dare I say, thrive. I think it has a pretty good idea who its key customer is and I think its the level and type of service they provide. I am now in Vancouver where the great not necessarily beautiful downtown store from the 70's that was Eaton's that became Sears has just closed its doors.
As it crunched down from 9 levels to 1 then none you could wonder the other floors as every fixture and piece of junk that could move was for sale, being ripped out and put into big piles. It is now to go through a two year renovation including a makeover of the exterior walls to open it up and then part is become a Nordstrom and the rest offices and such.
Moving from sad to exciting, kitty corner to it is the Hudson Bay Store going though a huge revitalization project in and out. The exterior terra cotta has been cleaned and restored and just recently traditional style entrance canopies have been installed that look great.
Inside all 8 levels are being redone and the store is staying open throughout. The new men's wear floor now relocated to the top floor a bit odd has just opened. Its very good and even has been opened back to the windows so natural light streams in. Its early yet and some corners cut or odd choices made but serious money is being invested so expecting a great store will be with us for some time to come. Also on the lost list would be Anderson's.
It was located in the city of St. Thomas, Ontario just 20 miles south of London and the Kingsmill's store discussed above. Thomas was known as the Railway Capital of Canada with 26 different railways having passed through at one time or other.
All that meant boom town activity and the Anderson family department store was a busy place in the centre of town. I recall one story telling of ladies millinery employing four hat makers at its heyday. The store closed in the 80's and the building was converted to apartments. Someone was asking what "gourment foods" meant in terms of scope and product. I'll use the example of Eaton's Winnipeg. On the Lower or Basement level was a full grocery store as extensive as anything anywhere in the city.
However on the third floor was the fine foods department. A featured house label was their Grill Room products, the Grill Room being the name of their wood paneled, white table cloth restaurant. Fine foods included the usual jar and packed items we think of today but also marble counters and displays for fine cheeses, including temperature controlled coolers behind the counter, full meat counter, again marble, with whole sides of meat aging in glass doored coolers and white coated butchers making cuts to order, chocolate counter, pastry and cakes and wonderful breads baked in a great brick oven in the bakery located in either the annex or catalog building.
The memory of the crustry acorn French loafs makes my mouth water as I write. It was a wonderful selection of fine foods indeed. Down the street at the Hudson Bay store there was also grocery store in the basement level and Govenors Table gourmet foods elsewhere. Not as extensive as Eaton's however. As an aside, what The Bay did have over Eaton's was a great tobacco and cigar shop and, at various times depending on the rules of the day, a spirts and wine shop with their own labeled rum, gin and such.
Eaton's never had either at anytime in its history because its founder, Timothy Eaton, was a strict tea totaler. Interesting, the circle has come round in many ways. The Bay's Queen Street store in Toronto has revived its food and deli department on the lower floor and much of what you see happening in grocery stores such as Whole Foods and many imitators, with displays, selection and service harkins back to what many of these great department stores once offered.
Times, standards and economics have changed things of course and the likes of the great Food Hall at Harrod's in London is not likely to be seen again but one can but Hope!
Thank you wholeheartedly for your eloquent and informative description! You captured the essence of what these "Gourmet Foods" departments were really like. Furthermore, though I have never been to Winnipeg, I do know what the Eaton's store meant to the city.
What a terrible loss to all of Canada and to anyone who loved the great stores, for surely Eaton's was very near the top of the pinnacle! Any information on Butler Brothers?
It was a nine store chain in California and Seattle. Very lovely stores and friendly clerks. I miss it very much. Dear Sir, Do you have any information on department stores donating silver tea sets and serving sets to Los Angeles Unified School District for use in Home Economics courses?
Let me know if you've heard tale of this and which stores if possible. All the best, KD. Do you have any information on vintage books that were bound for Marshall Field and Company? It has a blue leather cover with gold embossed center and trim, Pride and Prejudice printed in gold. On the top edge of the inside cover printed in gold it states: On the bottom of the inside cover printed in gold it states: For Marshall Field and Company.
Any help would be appreciated. The most help I can be with items like this is to publish your comment in hopes that someone with knowledge of antiquarian books sees it. When did Henry Harris Cincinnati officially close. I'm selling a Henry Harris blazer on my Etsy shop and would like to add some historical info to my listing.
I found 2 old husdon's jackets they are when they firs started making them any one want to see them they are for sale. Dad for over 40 years. It was my first job at Northland. Many, many trips to Downtown Hudson's on the Grand River bus no matter the season.
First stop was always the mezzanine floor to put coats away and use the restroom! Of course the 12th floor was the favorite.. Not sure what floor the resturant was on but still remember the Maurice Salad fondly. For years, Dad was in the Thanksgiving Parade every other year We'd go down early, have donuts and hot chocolate, see Dad get made up.
JL would come through and always greeted my dad by name. He would do the same for my Mom at Northland. I also worked at Jacobson's in Ann Arbor. They hired me immediately when they saw I had worked for Hudson's. There was a brass? My Dad's name was on it and that was also another stop to see and feel his name.
Do you know what ever happened to that? I have many things Dad saved I know there are things about those that served also, his name and photo was in a booklet. I need to go through that containor again, see what I have and scan what I can for you!
Let me know, Karen. Thanks, Karen for sharing those wonderful memories! It truly was "the people" that made these stores so special. I remember that plaque - It was near the Grand River escalators, I think. I believe it may have been moved to Northland, but I'll have to look into some books to see what I can find; you might try calling the Detroit Historical Museum to see if they know where it is.
You may email me at bakgraphics comcast. I would like to have some better images of Hudson's branches up until Good renderings or photos of these are hard to come by.
It was before TJ Maxx got there. Does any one remember it. I think the name had a Z in the beginning or something.
I loved that department store. It was in a plaza with Walgreens and maybe a furniture store. This was a department store that sold clothes, shoes, and other stuff. Many of the Online Jobs and Online Earning System in internet online Business, but here is a best and legit online earning systems with life time opportunity.
It was a department store in Fort Worth with five branches. The chain was converted to Dillard's in after its old owner Tandy bought it and demolished the flagship. It was a bit of a lower-end store, though it did have a full-line supermarket and a private subway! You have done an amazing job expanding and adding all the wonderful additions to this site. I am so glad you now starting to add the great retailers from our friends up north. Can't wait to see that addition. I am diligently working on some updates for the Canada stores - along with my book about Eaton's.
It is a fascinating history and I have combed the store's preserved archives for information and pictures that have never been seen by the general public.
I am very excited about the progress and if anyone has a special remembrance or experience of Eaton's I encourage them to contact me at bakgraphics comcast. There was a small store in foothill square Oakland in the late 60's I thought was a J Magnin. It had an elevator to the 2nd floor. Does anyone remember the name? I am wondering if an early childhood memory of mine can be verified by anyone. It was probably around I was 5 and the place was magical. It had delicate wrought iron cafe style tables and chairs.
The ceiling was very high and may have had a sky light. The floor may have been wight tile. In the center of the room was a towering centerpiece of plants, perhaps a small water fall and maybe even some live birds in cages. Can anyone else remember such a place???? I Have a question. Recently a friend who lives in Massachusetts found an original signed pastel in her basement.
It was framed and the brown paper over the back had a square card on it that said, "original artwork done especially for Jordan Marsh and Company. I was wondering when in their history did Jordan Marsh sell original works of art?
Is there anyplace to find out more about this. I can be reached at jumbalayahitch hotmail. I am wondering, Bak, if you have any information on a Lambacker sp? Any info would be appreciated, thanks! It contains just about anything one might want to know about Buffalo stores and is interesting in itself. I can still see its iconic script. It was exceedingly classy, and when you think about it, where can men and later, women buy clothes today like that!
You should add exhibits for department store matchbooks and restaurant menus. Do you have any information about a department store named Izards in Elmira, NY in the mid's? It was a typical downtown department with floors. I don't have much information; I think it was formally called the F. When my brother lived in Horseheads, I actually went to Iszard's mall store one evening - Downtown was not open late then. I was wondering if you want to add them to your credit card history?
Why have you left out the Carolinas? Talhimer's was in Charleston. Today they are all known as Belk. Rich's was also in Greenville, SC. I believe Ivey's was bought out by J. Greenville, SC also had a store named Parisianne for a while.
I worked there and that's where ALL the brink's csh was delivered. Any chance of you updating your site to include the following: I believe it closed in the early s.
Thanks - I will try to get Troutman's into the museum if I can find enough information. Can't believe you've completely missed one of the earliest Department Stores in the US. This was the biggest department store north of Manhattan for decades. Well this is a hobby, not science, so believe it. Anyway, it IS listed as a branch of Filene's. My Grandma took me there and to Young-Quinlan. There was a department store in Boston MA in the late 's called Raymond's. If interested, I can share quite a bit about the Loveman's in downtown Chattanooga and Eastgate Mall in the 's and early 's.
Can share information about Loveman's downtown Chattanooga and Eastgate Mall in the sixties and early seventies if you like.
That would be wonderful, since I could expand the exhibits for these stores. Please e-mail me at bakgraphics comcast. I'd like to hear anything you know about these stores. I stumbled on this wonderful site when looking for information on Britt's Department Store in Millbrae, California. That building then became Mervyns, then Kohls and is now empty. I did not see Britt's or Mervyns on the list, that were great stores and now gone. You missed one of the last remaining independent department stores in the country: Wilson's in Greenfield, MA: I LOVE this site.
I'm from Grand Rapids Michigan which had some wonderful department stores. Take a look at what we are looking to do in replicating a department store from for a Christmas movie "The Santa Hat" www. Holthausen's Department Store, -- the store of A.
Probably from the 50's. I know there are many reasons for the demise of the large department store, but in the last act of the regional chains with local identity, it seemed they were focused on quarterly profit and stock performance and then on positioning the company for merger or acquisition rather than on how to adjust to changing circumstances to preserve the business.
Post merger ,the wide-spread name changes on the newly acquired stores to Kaufmann's or Macy's all across the country again seemed to have the same motivation. There must have been a significant loss of local brand loyalty from that move.
But if yo are a board member or CEO and you want to cash out for retirement at a high stock price why have any interest in long term trends. I remember when the May Company on Public Square in Cleveland closed the upper floors and reduced the range of merchandise at that location to be the same as the offerings at the suburban locations. That meant it was no longer a destination store and that customer traffic would drop dramatically.
Sure enough, the store was eventually closed for just that reason. Was justifying the closure of the downtown store the purpose of that move, one has to wonder? If the May Co and Higbees had endured those downtown locations might again be viable today.
Your observations are spot-on, in my opinion. By reducing their presence, dwindling their selection, and homogenizing their image, these stores literally killed themselves, trying to squeeze the last dollar out of their operations.
It would appear that a businsess cannot starve itself into success, but that's what they tried to do, or so it would seem. Who can she contact to find out how old it is. I web-searched it and have not been able to find another like it yet. Hi Bak great job. Have you heard of a store by the name of L F Carter? Thank you for the kind comments.
I can't say I have heard of that store - where was it located? Do you know anything about Connie Krause? Her signature with a date was on some Macy's tile work out in Tyler, TX.
I assume it used to be a Sanger-Harris back in the day. Is she the designer for all of their tile work in the early 80s? I can't find any information about her. Can't find any history on it. Trying to find photos of the holiday train displays that were put in the windows of the different stores back in the 60s. Government Employees T Store?. Not sure if that is what the initials stood for.
Though Johnson's was a 'bookstore' in name they were really a small department store with sections for antiques, new books, greeting cards and stationery, art supplies, office supplies, toy department and a used book store out back above the art store. There used to be a department store on Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn in the late 's that also sold a lot of electronic devices and electric fans.
It was only in business for a few years and there was a branch location located on Rockaway Parkway. Would anyone happen to remember the name of that store? I just can't remember it for the life of me. I have a degree in Merchandising Management from Michigan Statea degree no longer offered. Retailing is very dear to me and your site reminded me of fond memories thanks again! Do any classic American department stores still exist? If so, which are the best and where are they?
I'd love to experience what shopping was like in that era. I have to say no. Many people comment that Von Maur or Nordstrom replicate the experience, but I don't think so, at least not in every respect. In Canada, there was a tiny holdout in London, Ontario, named Kingsmills. It closed last year, though. While it was small, you could sense that traditional atmosphere, and since it was small and local, it avoided the sense of over-standardization in a commercial manner that characterizes shopping today.
I was always intrigued by Jacobson's owner, Nathan Rosenfeld's comments that good stores satisfied their customers by understanding them, while he loathed the idea of manufacturers creating demand for their goods and using retail stores as vending machines for them. That's what we have today. Hello, Thank you for this site.
This is a lovely compilation of old department stores. In doing some family research I have found a great, great, great aunt who was a well known buyer of fashions for Jordan Marsh in Boston in the 's. I am wondering do you know where employee photos or information may be housed? Is there an archive or repository that holds such information? Many thanks again for this site. Thank you for the compliments, Donna. I doubt that they took employee photos back then, and as far as I know, there may not be any archival records left.
If anything, they could be in the possession of Macy's, Inc. One thing you couold do is to search her name in online newspaper archives. Hello and thank you so much for the wonderful memories. I was wondering if you have found any information on Freiman's department store in Ottawa. I have fond memories of the wonderful malted-milk bar next to the tunnel entrance to the parkade in the basement and my mum using her charge plate for her purchases Yes, I have much information about Freiman's and will be adding it as soon as I can.
I visited there in the s when it had become The Bay. It seemed like a really nice store. A ten-foot model was created and placed in Eaton's display window in Montreal. Any knowledge or photos of this? Model is the biggest thing in their Lighter-Than-Air display. Wondering what merchandise Eaton's might have featured in relation to this hugely popular event in The visit is mentioned on Wikipedia, but I had not heard of it.
There maybe some information in the Eaton's archives at the Archives of Ontario. It might be a needle-in-the-haystack search, but perhaps an archivist could help you. There is an online finding aid that could prove helpful at http: They are badly indexed for searching, but you can easily browse to those dates and read the newspapers as in a library on microfilm.
There may even be an Eaton ad that would relate. I am glad that you enjoy the book. The publisher and distributor have dropped the ball totally on that one, but after all it was a "labour of love. In the Montreal Gazette the R dirigible visit was front page news from July 26, for more than 3 weeks.
Eaton's ran a congratulatory ad on August 1. Ogilvy's on August 1. Lots of product ads for gasoline, fibre board, wine, gin, ale, tobacco, binoculars, and disinfectant tying in to R flight. Thanks for referral to Montreal Gazette. I am going to Chicago tomorrow, and have copied the info on all the depts. We thought it had everything you could possibly want although I know now how really small it was. Rode my first escalated there scary , saw my first Santa there not convincing , stared into my image in one of those infinity mirrors, and totally enjoyed shopping in a magical place at least from a small kid's perspective.
What's up with these people criticizing Macy's. Macy's is still one of the greatest department stores and one of the existing department stores of that era. I still have the bag from that branch in LA. Well, I think many people don't think it has much to do with the historical Macy's - it really is a name Federated Department Stores bought for itself in the '80s or '90s.
The real Macy's had wider assortments, distinctive stores, and great traditions. Not so much now, and the fact that it is the same wherever you go is not a mark in its favor. I truly enjoyed looking through your website. Our family has a lot of info which we would be happy to share. I can tell you a story about the wind chime at Newport Center! I found a 's coat with the label "Elton's" and two more labels with the words "styled by Visconti" and "Kurlana" anyone know of this store?
