About:Favorite old photo: A parade in Columbia presents questions
In early June 1944, W.I. Ingram retired and sold his dry goods business to Roland Baldwin, who planned to "operate under Baldwin Department Store." A half page announcing same appeared in the June 7 News.
On the second day of spring, 1945, a front page article in the News reported Mr. Baldwin the previous week had sold his enterprise to Glasgow businessman Haskel Mitchell.
"The stock of goods was moved elsewhere immediately after the sale and according to reports the building will be completely renovated in readiness for a new Firestone Store." The Firestone Store had a soft opening on Monday, September 17, 1945 and fully opened on or about the first day of October. - Compiled by JIM
