It is hard to believe, but it will be 40 years that Denholms vacated the downtown Worcester building that it occupied for over 100 years. On November 26th, 1973 the legendary Main Street store held its last sale, and closed on Wednesday-Thanksgiving Eve. The photo above was from the Telegram and Gazette archives and shows the vacant display windows with store closing signs. Denholms succumbed to poor miss management in its final years, and it was one of the first major retailers to close up shop.
As the Telegram website reads..."Gone but not forgotten".
