This Ames one from 1996 is also pretty enjoyable. It’s drowning in middle school nostalgia:

Ok, so there has been a vacant store that I’ve been sorta obsessed with since joining flickr in 2005:


{from Flickr user iandavid}


{From Flickr user XISMZERO, who also runs The Caldor Rainbow}

Caldor builds urban focus with N.Y. units – opens stores in Flushing, New York, and Bronx, New York, New York” The store opened in 1994 and was four levels.

From the article:

Its regional nemesis, Bradlees, has plans for a Brooklyn store, but that unit will not open until 1994.

The Flushing store included some merchandising that seemed designed especially for a city store. The women’s department, for instance, featured gold lame and other evening style dresses–not common in most suburban Caldors.

Here is a photo of the Caldor in 1994.

I’ve read recently that finally something is going on at the old Caldor.

I’ve been looking all over on Flickr tonight to see if anybody ever had the chance to get inside of there when the store was still vacant. I haven’t found anything yet.

What are peoples memories of this store?
