11 Stores That Anyone Who Grew Up In Louisiana Will Undoubtedly Remember
It’s always fun to take a stroll down memory lane. If you grew up in Louisiana, these stores are probably a huge part of your childhood. Get ready, you probably haven’t thought of these for a long time!
1. Maison Blanche
Founded in 1897, Maison Blanche was a popular department store before being acquired by Dillard’s in 1997.
Bonus points if you still refer to something as "K&B purple".
This drug store had its heyday in 2004 before becoming CVS and Rite Aids.
Lafayette locals will remember Abdalla’s as the place to go get new sneakers, uniforms, back to school clothes, and party dresses. They closed down in 2015 after 110 years in business.
The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, better known as A&P closed down in 2015, after 156 years.
This Shreveport department store operated from 1898 until closing down in 1987.
The Sav-A-Center chain had supermarkets in throughout Louisiana, even a couple stores in Mississippi before selling to Rouses and Breaux Mart.
This supermarket chain was quite popular in the Southern United States until it was acquired by Safeway in 1983. Do you remember shopping here?
This chain of supermarkets along the Gulf Coast was the old school Rouses.
10. Muller’s Department Store
Lake Charles residents will remember this department store fondly. It closed down in 1986.
If you lived anywhere near New Orleans, you knew this jingle. "Rosenberg’s, Rosenberg’s. 1825 Tu-lane!" I don’t think there was any other establishment more successful in getting customers to know their address. This popular furniture store shut its doors in the early 2000s, but their jingle will forever be stuck in our heads.
