Do You Remember These 10 Massachusetts Retailers?
In the age of booming e-commerce, big-box retail stores are no longer the go-to for consumers. Sears recently made the news as they are closing more stores, making the once-massive retailer closer to becoming completely obsolete. But, these stores make for great nostalgia!
DO YOU REMEMBER THESE 10 MASSACHUSETTS RETAILERS?
My mother's favorite! This place just screams of 1987. Caldor ceased to operate in 1999. Discount shopping baby!
Ceasing to operate in 1990, this Boston-based chain was wicked popular!
The Braintree-based retailer closed up stores in 2001. My mother would often take us there and threaten to have the manager speak to us if we didn't quiet down in the store.
Closing up stores in 2002, Massachusetts was littered with Ames stores.
My first job would net me around $12, just enough to buy a CD! Does anyone remember their sister store Coconuts?
That catalog, though? Appliances, clothes, automotive, Sears had it all!
Founded in 1879 and becoming defunct in 1997, Woolworth's had a Pittsfield location back in the day.
8. FILENE'S BASEMENT
Closing for good in 2011, this was a great spot to grab some cheap good clothes, shoes, etc.
9. SERVICE MERCHANDISE
Service Merchandise closed up in 2002, I think my dad got my mother some jewelry there when we were growing up.
Walmart eventually swallowed up this once popular retailer. It closed in 1996.
