Only in York County

Do you remember these downtown stores?

In talking about some of the “stores past” in York County, a new commenter, Marsha Jones, brought up some specific to York’s downtown area.

She writes: “The downtown stores were the best. Remember the Bon Ton Tea Room and the anticipation of their Christmas display? Also, the perfume fountain? People’s in the square was great, the best variety of candy. Here’s one to test your memory, Robert Hall’s Clothing Store on West Market Street, across from the old West Side Hospital, remember? Thanks for the memories.”

Does anyone else remember those stores? While I was looking them up in our staff archives, I found a neat story from 2006 – “Remembering downtown’s department store heyday.” Check it out, and let me know what else you remember about downtown York in that era!
