  1. This store was located in Springfield, IL, not Missouri. It was located at 631 E. Adams Street in downtown Springfield. When the White Oaks Mall opened in 1977, Bressmer's opened a store there as well. The mall store soon became a Stix, Baer and Fuller, which disappeared around 1980 ( I think Dillard's bought them out and closed this store). Bressmer's closed its downtown store in 1980 as well. One of the State agencies now uses the building. I remember going into the downtown store as a kid in the 1970's and riding the escalators up and down.

  2. I was the Ladies Moderate and Better Sportwear Buyer for Bressmers from 1971-1973 and worked in various positions there prior to be named Buyer (Assistant Buyer for same Departments, Fine China and Housewares, Junior Department). It was a wonderful place to work, high class, high standards and an experience I will never forget! Yes, logged many a trip on the escalators as Better Sportswear was righ off the third floor escalator exit!
