This will be developed into something soon.
It's one of the last untouched properties on Third Street, which is on fire with renovations.

Oooh.

That looks like the old Neusteter's store here in Denver with those display zones.

It got turned in to a Eddie Bauer then a Rite Aid.

Maybe the three sisters ran off with the three brothers pizza guys from the NJ Shore?

About a year ago a bid was put in on the Commerce Building, but the person was more than a little shady. Initially, he used an alias, later, there were questions about mob connections, etc. etc.

Sigh. The ground floor certainly is interesting enough, and in the recent past has hosted both "Virtual Museum" exhibits as well as, a while back, at least one vintage automobile (I don't know if that was part of the Virtual Museum or not).

I just wish someone would repaint the facade--that color is really hideous.

Here's the inside: http://www.flickr.com/photos/imali03/sets/72157602687531351/

The decor doesn't exactly scream "women's clothing." I don't know what was in here last. Someone mentioned something about motorcycles, but vintage cars would make sense, too.

I *love* this segment of your blog!
Fascinating.

Cool blog all around, by the way.

I grew up in BR and when I was a little girl, a big treat was to ride the bus downtown (all dressed up, of course), shop or go to a movie and have lunch at Stroubes or a soda at Walgreens.

Years later, I worked downtown in 2 different time periods and spent a dollar or two at Three Sisters.


Love your blog and hope to see more of the old downtown "haunts' talked about.

Denison, Texas (North of Dallas/Plano - on the Oklahoma border - Also President Eisenhowers birth place) - back in the 50's thru maybe the 80's - there was a shoppee downtown Denison, Texas 75020 - named "Three Sisters" it was a department store that carried womens clothing - I have a freind - Kathy Surratt (maiden name) whos mother worked there all her life. Back in the day - it was (or seemed) to be a nice place for older women to shop. It was on Main Street - downtown. I'm not sure if this was a chain - seemed at the time this was the only Three Sisters - but looking back - it may have been like Kress 5 and dime, Newberrys, etc. This was back before malls - when there were downtowns......boy those were the days - such sweet memories! :-)

There was an Three Sisters department store located at 5960 Eastern Avenue, now known as Martin Luther King Dr. It was abandoned for over 20 years until a gentleman converted it into a club 3 years ago. I would like find some old photos. If someone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.

This has got be one of the styliest most Posh store entrances I've seen, on my branch, and as i see now, also on yours. But their shoes are simply spectacular and for me it's not a cat in the sack!

I spotted a Three Sister's facade in Port Arthur. Looking at the 2 photos, I'd say the font is the same and likely a chain.

Thanks for all the memories/ info about Three Sisters, everyone! Jill, especially cool to see your photos-- everyone else should check them out, too.

Okay.I was born and lived in Freeport,Texas*(*60 Miles South of Houston)from 1959-74 and I remember a mostly women's clothing store in Downtown Freeport called Three Sisters.

My Mom and Paternal Grandma shopped there along with Weiner's Department Stores as well.

If theyr'e the same store chain I'd love to know.

lillie;

three sisters was a very fashionable ladies shop in atlanta ga. I bought my prom dress there in 1963. they had affordable and stylist fashions for the day. the logo on the store front that you show looks the same as th atlanta store.

I remember going in this store with my aunts when they were teens. I remember those scary ass mannequins like it was yesterday! Thanks for this awesome blog ...they bring back so many memories.

I used to shop here with my mother often for clothes. That was before the days of a mall in Baton Rouge. Actually, they had nice clothes for a reasonable price back in the 1960's. There were several clothing stores in that area, and we made a day of it.

I posted a photo of my sisters and I on a local Facebook page in front of a walkway tiled with "Three Sisters". I was also told it sold women's apparel. Several believed it was local, but it appears that is not the case. I cannot determine how to attach my photo. The lettering was different, but sounds like the same store. The location I photographed was on the square in Springfield, Missouri.
