January Sales in 1959 Retro Boston
Hello, Retro Boston Lovers!
January is here...snow...cold...and yes, shopping!!
January sales events are famous all over the US and Boston had a wonderful tradition of January sales that really became a legend!
Filene's had for many years what they called...January Jumbo Values.
Gilchrist's did...January Jubilee.
Conrad&Chandler celebrated their...Merger Anniversary Sale.
And Jordan Marsh Company always celebrated their birthdays in January with big ads proclaiming just how "old" they were. In 1959....they were 108 and proud of it!!
Enjoy this wonderful walk through a snowy Boston in January 1959 and let's go shopping!!!
