  1. My Dad started his retail career at Vandervoorts in St Louis. We moved to Hawaii to continue his career at Liberty House. Lived in Hawaii for 2 years and came back "home" to Kansas City and Dad was Manager or Hall's Downtown. Hall's on the Plaza was being built and Hall's Crown Center would come later. I woudl love to see pictures of the original Halls store downtown KC. It was a magical place for me. I cannot find anything online that the store ever existed. It was a beautiful elegant store and my Dad was so proud to be a part of Halls. Can you help? Thanks...Trish

    1. Trish, go to:

      to see a picture of Halls on Grand Avenue, as well as an inside photo that was in the Kansas City Star. It's difficult to find pictures, but I bet Hallmark has some kind of archive for the store. It's too bad that Hall's Plaza location is now closed . . . It was quite unique when opened.

      My parents both worked at Vandervoorts where they met and fell in love in 1956. Mom was the sportswear buyer, my father was the milinery buyer. Does anyone have any interior photos of the store?

  2. There was briefly a Vandervoort's store at Northwest Plaza in St.Ann. It opened in August of 1965 and closed in 1969. it was replaced by a Famous-Barr Home Store and eventually split into a Movie Theater and Food Court.

  3. I have a 1930's dress with a label that reads: Adaptation MOLYNEUX. I obtained the dress from an elderly lady in St Genevieve, MO. I am trying to find where she may have purchased the dress and the most logical place to start is St. Louis. Shot in the dark but was trying to find which department store might have had a department carrying French Couture.

  4. I found a print photo from this store in my grandpa's house and I am hoping to find the negative. Does anyone know what happened to the negatives of the photos that were kept on file when the store shut down? Thanks!

  5. I purchased a fur stole at an estate sale with a Scruggs Vandervoort Barney label. Trying to findthe history behind the piece and whether it's real and what kind of fur it is

  6. I have 2 pieces of art that came from the Scruggs Vandervoort and Barney. One piece is a huge oil painting which is pretty old. It belonged to my great uncle whose wife liked to shop. Supposedly this was a painting that hung in the store. The other piece is MCM with price tag from Vandervoorts. Is there any way to find out info on the art that was in the stores in St Louis?

  7. I have a for coat. With the tag saying ( Scruggs Vandervoort Barney St. Louis) it's in perfect condition. I just dont know what to do with it or if its worth anything
