Montgomery Ward ~

We kids loved Montgomery Ward's because they had some bicycles in the basement that we could feast our eyes on.

My Aunt worked there for many years,transferred to the new store and eventually retired from Wards. I remember the big black fans,this was pre air-conditioning big time. Stifling hot in there in the summer.My Mom didn't shop there a lot,preferred Sears even though they only had a catalog store in Butler. My big attraction was to go look at the rifles and shotguns they sold.

What was this store before it was Montgomery Ward? It was quite a beautiful building.

Wasn't it Jaffe's after Montgomery Ward moved?

Yes, I believe it was Jaffe's after that.

Yes, Jaffe's after that and then I think Armstrong Utilities occupied this address until it was converted to offices or something. But that last metamorphosis was after I left Butler in the mid-70's.

The upstairs section of the building looks so inviting. Is there a great magnificent hall up there?
