Roblin Blvd. A neighborhood department store. Talk about an anachronism. I noticed this place for the first time about a year ago; I don’t even know how that’s possible, as I grew up pretty close (on the east side of Assiniboine Forest). But somehow it had always escaped my attention.
And it was only after posting this photo on Twitter that I learned a but more about the store and that it would soon be closing its doors after 60 years in business. In fact, somewhat coincidentally, the store was scheduled to close down only a couple of weeks after this photo was taken.
The rest of the photos in this batch (from what essentially comprises Downtown Charleswood): Robert Lee Martial Arts; the corner of Roblin and Hendon; and Chicken Delight.
