Kresge’s – 1990

Happy Friday, and welcome to November…

Today’s picture was taken April 17, 1990

The caption on the back reads:

    S.S. Kresge Co. is closing after 61 years in Windsor – 245 Ouellette and Chatham

I’m at the age now, when I don’t think of 1990 being that long ago… and suddenly I realize it was 22 years ago. Share your stories Windsorites, who’s got fond memories of this place. I moved to Windsor at the end of summer 1989, and I don’t recall visiting the store when I was open, although I do remember the building and a do remember it getting knocked down for the new Royal Bank that now stands in its place.

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday. Don’t forget to roll your clocks back an hour before bed tomorrow night…
