PROGRAM HELD AT SOUTH CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH HALL, 16 HIGH ST., SOUTH GLASTONBURY
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.!
Prior to the presentation, sandwiches and tea will be served in the style of The Connecticut Room, G. Fox’s famous restaurant.
$20 advanced ticket purchase only. Limited seating. Contact Laura Decker to purchase tickets at (860) 721-8284 or [email protected].
