Well, I am almost 61. I remember going to Kresge's in Williamsport, PA BEFORE there was Kmart, W.T. Grant's, J.J. Newberrys and Woolworths. My grandmother worked at Montgomery Ward and I followed her years later. I watched my favorite place of employment lose department after department until Corporate finally ran it out of business. I also remember when Christmas was more like the one portrayed in the movie A Christmas Story. Back then it was more than just a commercial money-making enterprise.
