May 20, 1955: Wednesday is Downtown Shopping Day

Buffalo’s downtown merchants spent most of the 1950s encouraging the ladies of the house to get on the bus and head downtown to shop on Wednesdays.

Women who donned a hat and grabbed the charge-plate and a few bus tokens were treated to sales like the ones outlined on these two pages from a Wednesday 60 years ago this week.

Bargains were to be had at stores such as Tanke’s, Kleinhans, JN Adam's, Hens & Kelly, Oppenheim Collins, Victor’s, Hengerer’s, Neisner’s, Flint & Kent, Kobacker’s, Berber’s, AM&A’s, Grant’s and plenty of others.
