A Shopper’s Delight

When the first department store opened in 1825, it opened up shopping possibilities that had never been seen by the American public. For the first time, Americans could shop for items like clothing, dry goods, and beauty products, all in one place. But despite their popularity, today many department stores struggle against online shopping and the modern economy, and several stores have been lost. Our Department Store series helps recover these forgotten stores, and celebrate their shopping legacy!
