S&R Department Store

The whole city is mourning the demise of this famous store, which is closing after 50 years. It still has wooden floors and real live elevator operators, and is a warren of odd-shaped rooms that sell everything from groceries to hardware and prom dresses. These days, every time the name "S & R" is mentioned there is a little pause, and the speaker and listener look stricken. The store is scheduled to close in July--the end of an era.
