Minnesota-Memories-Adv-In-Lrng-2019Meet Kristal Leebrick, author of  “Thank You for Shopping – The Golden Age of Minnesota Department Stores”.

Take a nostalgic trip back to the glory days of downtown department stores, when beloved institutions such as Dayton’s, Donaldson’s, Powers, Young Quinlan, Marshall Fields, Field Schlick and the Golden Rule dominated the retail landscapes of downtown Minneapolis and
St. Paul. For countless Minnesotans the local department store was where they purchased their first prom dress, landed their first job, purchased a plane ticket, got their first charge card!

Kristal will present the history, stories and lavish illustrations behind these stores many of whom were centers of social life in the Twin Cities.

Kristal Leebrick has worked for more than three decades as a writer and editor for community newspapers, trade magazines and websites.

Do not miss this local historian take us on a journey back in time and experience the hustle, bustle, and heyday of Minnesota’s late, great department stores!!!
