Cleveland’s Department Stores

I didn’t grow up in Cleveland so I don’t remember the big department stores such as Bailey’s and Sterling-Lindner, but I do remember Halle’s, Higbee’s, and the May Company. The stores downtown at Christmas were wonderful and exciting to visit. Did you know that Lucille Ball visited Halle’s in 1956? Or that the giant cash register installed at the new May Company store at Parmatown in 1960 was considered cutting-edge? Check it all out in the book, Cleveland’s Department Stores by Christopher Faircloth.                                                                                  ~ Ann
