Miss the service of yesterday?
I do. I must admit that shopping now in at least one of my favorite stores of yesteryear is a disappointment. There is no one in the shoe department to help you find a size. There is no one in the ladies department to help you find the proper fit for you. There are only a few checkers to check you out if you buy an item.
So look at this picture of a shoe store downtown many years ago. They had excellent service from helping you decide what your size was to helping you find your size, encouraging you to put on the shoe, walk around with it to see how it felt, and then took your payment with a happy smile.
This picture was in a 1978 Harding yearbook and it does bring back some good memories!
