Thank You For Shopping
About This Registration
Throughout the twentieth century, department stores ruled the retail landscapes of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. More than just shopping centers, stores like Dayton’s, Powers, Donaldson’s, Young-Quinlan, the Emporium, and the Golden Rule were centers of social life. From the legendary Dayton’s Christmas and spring flower displays to celebrating a special occasion at Schuneman’s River Room, the department store was a destination for generations of Minnesotans, within the Twin Cities and beyond.
Thank You for Shopping author Kristal Leebrick presents the history and stories behind Minnesota’s great department stores, offering a lively trip back to the glory days. She will have books for sale.
