This little gem was uncovered a few years ago during a remodel inside a downtown building. Anyone know where this is?
Diana Shops, a dress store chain, opened in Kingsport in 1949 next to McCrory’s on Broad Street. In November 1959, the company moved to the newly constructed building at 230 Broad Street. The shop was located between S.H. Kress and Fuller & Hillman. Below, a group of employees pose in the store’s new location. Diana Shops carried a complete line of dresses, coats, suits, sportswear, beachwear and lingerie. The store was managed by Shirley Wright.
The Kroger Grocery and Bakery Company seen in these images, taken in 1946, was located at 324 Cherokee Street on the corner of New Street. The Cherokee Building was located across the street from the Union Bus Terminal. Below, shoppers stock up on groceries and supplies in this interior view of Kroger.
