Makin’ groceries – Schwegmann style.  Meeting under the D.H. Holmes clock.  K&B purple.  The myriad businesses on Dryades and South Rampart Streets.  Dress shopping at Godchaux’s, Gus Mayer and Kreeger’s.  Dressing up to go downtown.  Scouting out stylish finds in Krauss’ legendary fabric department.  Tracking treasures at Woolworth’s, Kress and other five-and-ten-cent stores.

When Crescent City shoppers remember the retailers of the recent past, these are just a few of their favorite things.  These memories – and so many more – are shared in WHERE NEW ORLEANS SHOPPED.  So, don your white gloves and hat and meet us “under the clock” for a trip down memory lane.
