    That plaque makes it sound like Doug Jemal did all the “painstaking” work himself.

    I miss Woodies. In the 1950-60s, Woodies was one of the few department stores AAs could try on clothing before purchasing. Woodies had a restaurant called the Champagne Room, a book store in the north building, Santa’s workshop, electronics, drycleaners, jewelry fix-it shop, and shoe repair. Before Metro Center was built, there was a bargain basement. Twice yearly early-bird sales kicked off with some items 60-70% off and crowds outside waiting 3-4 hours for store to open. The Christmas windows were the best! These windows were done immediately after Thanksgiving but you could not see behind the closed drapes. Each year was a different theme of the animated, wood carved, display. Crowds and traffic around the block! What a great store!!!!

      I loved Woodies. And after metro center was built, the bargain basement moved to the second floor of the north building.
