If you haven't seen Higbee's, today...
For those of you who never knew Cleveland in the 60s and 70s, one of the better traditional department stores was Higbees. In the marketing world of that era, Higbee's came in just under Halle's, but above The May Company. When Halle's went belly up in the early 80s, Higbee's took over the top retail spot until the Cleveland based company was purchased by Dillard.
It was Higbee's main store in downtown Cleveland that served as the back drop for department store in A Christmas Story.
So enjoy the video (after the cheesy opening credit and the closing one) and I hope it brings back good memories.
