From Hula Hoops to High Fashion: Remembering G. Fox & Co. in the 1950s

October 23, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm |

A Night To Remember G. Fox & Co

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 floor to floor 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.!

This program is free and open to the public, but you must call to RSVP by October 21. Please call Lisa Galipo at (860) 721-2979 or email [email protected]
