    In 1959 I was an assistant in the stationery, book, candy dept. for Mr. Kelly. Then in 1960 I went to the cosmetics dept. as an assistant buyer. I also did modeling for the store while working there. What a great store to work for. Everyone was so nice, and the merchandise was first class. My favorite depts. were on the second floor. All the designer clothes I modeled came from designer fashions.. I remember the Ann Fogarty collection and made sure to purchase some of her things, one of which was a gorgeous velvet dress for the holidays. After two years or so I decided to join Northeast airlines as a stewardess and did some traveling and was married. But I will always have fond memories of Grover Cronin and the staff.
