Sycamore Department Store Closes For Lack of Merchandise

From the May 2, 2018, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1943, 75 Years Ago.

"The doors of the Sycamore department store, one of the largest in the city and which has been a part of the mercantile interest of this city, for some time, were closed yesterday.

"For several days the owner of the place has been disposing of all the merchandise left and did a successful  piece of work as there was but very little to be hauled away.  Inability to secure merchandise to successfully operate a general variety store of this nature was given as the reason for closing."

More Wartime Shortages.  --GreGen
