This Day in Norwood History-November 28, 1944-New Cummings Store To Open On Washington Street

D. E. Price, supervisor of the Cummings Store for 14 years, announced today that the new Cummings Store, located at 659 Washington street, would open Thursday, November 29.

The new store, which will appeal to every woman, is three times the size of the present one. It is strictly modern throughout, with air-conditioning and indirect-lighting. Decorations are of soft pastel colors.

Mr. Price stated that the whole store has been planned with an eye for the post-war future, pointing out that if a store has atmosphere and carries the latest fashions in women’s wearing apparel, there will be no need of women going outside their own community to buy. Not only will there be apparel to interest the matron, but the Junior Miss will be able to find the things that appeal to her.

Mrs. Mary Deuce, who has been with the concern since it opened in Norwood 14 years ago, will continue her association with the Cummings Store in its new location.
