My Grandmother at work

My Grandmother was Josephine Carbone ( second from the left). She worked for Denholms starting in 1947 as a stock girl. After working her way up through the ladder, she eventually became a woman's buyer, and then from there went on to be a Divisional Merchandise Manager of the all of the Women s departments. Besides being a very career minded woman, she was also a major part of my life, and I miss her dearly. I am so lucky to have been able to call her my grandmother as she was, and still is larger than life to me.

Denholm and McKay window installation

I am currently in the process of renovating the 3 large windows between the two entrances, and doing a retrospective of the store that spans from it's beginning in 1871 till closing in 1973.

My plan is to restore the windows back to their original 1951 opening look. Keep your fingers crossed!!! Window install goes in the last week of September.
