In the 1950s, just about every major city had a landmark department store. In Connecticut, it was G. Fox & Co. in Hartford!
This presentation will bring you back in time to Fox’s heyday, as we go from fl oor to fl oor and recall departments ranging from accessories on the “street” floor, to designer dresses on 6, and ending at Toyland on 11. You’ll also learn about Beatrice Fox Auerbach, the remarkable woman who made every visit to Fox’s so enjoyable and set the standard for customer service. We promise to stir pleasant memories of date nut bread in the Connecticut Room, back to school shopping, and the wonderful Christmas season at G. Fox & Co.!
Mask Update: Masks are required for all program attendees despite vaccination status.
