Classic TG&Y Family Center Retail Store Exterior in 1965 - Santa Fe, New Mexico

Exterior view of a TG&Y Family Center retail store in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Picture taken in 1965 - note the "30th Anniversary Sale" banner in the windows.

 

TG&Y was a major player in the "five and dime" style stores. Founded in 1935, the name consists of the initials of its founders: Tomlinson, Gosselin, and Young. At its height, there were over 900 stores.

 

I found these pictures while going through an old family photo album. My grandfather managed this store, located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, amongst several others in the area.
