Happy Birthday, America!

Happy Birthday America!!

 

Enjoy your day and a vintage American retail memory: 103 years ago, American President Woodrow Wilson declared June 14, 1916 the start of Flag Day, USA – congress approved it in 1949. Hudson’s Department store in Detroit, MI hung its flag across 7 stories (pictured below) and kept tradition for 40 years. Retail was different with millinery ladies hat sections, floor sales associates were hand-picked specialists, sample dresses were pre-ordered and made for each customer. Product and departments were set up to influence buying habits.
