The on-line museum of North America's independent department stores. The museum holds all sorts of information about classic department stores which either no longer exist, or are changed beyond recognition. A few of them are still with us, and provide an interesting connection to North America's retail past. The others are presented so that they may be properly remembered as a tangible part of the lives of their customers, shopping destinations where memories were often made.

I loved going there as a child to see Santa, or with my dad and sisters to get a gift for my mother. It was a happening placeReplyDelete
I just found a box of very old Tepper's seamed stockings, all new wrapped in tissue paper. My Mom past away in the early 70's and much of her stuff was past along from child to child upon their deaths without anyone ever looking through them till now.ReplyDelete
OMG My Mom's favorite department store, I still have gift boxes from Tepper's. The big shopping day was to go to Tepper's. And yes, a visit to Santa was a Christmas highlight!ReplyDelete
