5th & Adams (1970)



  1. Pat:

    I used to work at “the dime store” (Kresge’s) in high school. Worked Monday & Friday night’s and all day Saturday making 75 cents an hour, thus clearing $9.12 per week (paid in cash in a little brown envelop!!) My very 1st. job.

  2. Rosy:

    Worked there until 1963; they had the same system.

  3. Al Farmer:

    In the late 50’s and very early 60’s, I used to go downtown to pay bills for my family when I was a kid. My big treat was a hot dog, fries and a Richardson’s Root Beer at Kresge’s!

    That was converted into the first K-Mart in Springfield, as well.
