    What year do you think it existed?

    Krasner's... or spelled somehow like that?

    My daughter's grandmother use to work there back in the early 80's.

    I read that Krasner's opened their first store at Southgate plaza in 1956

    There’s a website, “thedepartmentstoremuseum.org” I think, that gives histories of department stores across the US. I don’t think Krasners is there but Hengerers, AM&A, Berger’s , pretty sure they’re all there. Lots of interesting stuff, eg, the Hengerer’s at Main & Eggert, now a Key bank facility I believe, was designed by a world famous architect whose name completely escapes me.
