Montgomery Wards

Montgomery Ward is the name of two historically distinct American retail enterprises. It can refer either to the defunct mail order and department store retailer which operated between 1872 and 2000 or to the original name of the online retailer Wards.

This is a shot of my daily driver. Its a 60's vintage Montgomery Wards (Japanese) machine. I got it at the dump. Brought it home,serviced it and she runs like a Deere. I built my station out of a drafting table, (also free) and modeled it after the workstations I had back in the day. This also has a tilt top so you can bring the head close for small jobs. I also designed it so you are centered behind the needle.
Bennigans next to Montgomery Wards , next to Circuit City.Thursday Nights was amazing.
I remember when. .. In the early 60's credit cards were not common but Mom received her first from Montgomery Wards. She went down and bought Dad three new suits. The next morning Dad was getting dressed with his new suit, all while Mom was watching from the bed. She would watch every piece go on, Dad would carefully check each item for perfect fit. Dad tied his neck tie, put on his suit jacket, standing in front of the mirror checking to be sure all looked good. Mom was eyeing Dad from head to toes then told Dad, "you better call your boss, you ARE going to be late " and with a wink of the eye... I remember when. ..
curious... Piece of the Pie pizza at Arborland MALL.not arborland strip mall. Back in the Service Merchandise days when I met my first love. Covered, but still with the dolphin. Not going so far back to remember the 'pool' with the "fountain" when the mall was uncovered, where I pushed my older brother in when he was trying to grab the change and my mother game out to find him soaked. he he he, Montgomery Wards?

What was your first job in the SFV? I was 16 and was a PBX Operator at Montgomery Wards! Yes, I was the one that would get on the speaker every night and let you know that the store was closing! There were 2 of us that answered all the calls and transferred them to the appropriate department. And yes...it actually was on of those old ones that you see from the 70's. You actually did "plug them in" to the correct extension!
I remember taking a charm school class at Montgomery wards... And actually they did teach us to walk like Mariah Carey does...
Hi all. Been waiting to share this since I joined a few days ago. Its my pride and joy. I designed this myself. I converted a drafting table and made a sewing station out of it. When I sewed commercially, one of the things I liked was that you were centered behind the needle so you didn't have to reach left or right. I engineered this feature into mine. But the coolest thing is that its a tilt top. When you need to look at the needle or feed dogs what's the first thing you do? Lean over the machine and look right. On mine you bring the machine to you and it locks in place so its easier to sew small items and super easy for things like zippers. I love it and the lady who owns the quilt shop in town said she's never seen anything like it. It also houses my favorite machine. Its a 60's vintage Japanese, Montgomery Wards. I put a Schmetz needle in it and can sew anything. Anyway, sorry to be so long winded, just love the heck out if this setup.:-)
Your mother loved Montgomery Wards, I mean "Monkey Wards", which is now a Kmart.
OH YEAH! A 475 page B&H catalog. This is way better than Montgomery Wards and Sears put together!
True, but a very similar one was produced. Was sold in Montgomery Wards or Sears for a single sumner I think
Remember 1985 when Greg Lukenbill and his Band of Boys brought the Kings to Sacramento? I watched him grow up as I worked for his Auntie Rose at Montgomery Wards on 65th and Florin.

Since we are talking about Restaurants inside of Departmant stores: Anyone Remember the "Buffeteria" inside Montgomery Wards? I worked there for about a year when I was 15-16. The food was really Good, and Betty, the lady who ran it was so nice. It was so sad how she died
My first guitar was a Montgomery Wards F hole similar to this one

A Little History Back in the 1940's (1944 to be exact), there was a department store chain called Montgomery Wards. In early 1943, employees of Ward, went on strike in seven cities, Jamaica, NY; Detroit, Chicago, St. Paul, Denver and San Rafael, CA and Portland, OR. Wards management stood their ground and refused to recognize or capitulate to union thugs in these seven locations. On April 26, 1944, FDR ordered US troops to storm and seize Ward's corporate offices in Chicago. Yes, you read that correctly, FDR ordered US troops against Americans on American soil, physically captured private business property and even had Ward's CEO Sewell Avery forcibly carried out of his office by US troops. FDR then installed his Sec. of Commerce, Jesse Holman Jones as manager of Ward's Chicago facility. FDR justified his action by citing his power as Commander in Chief and his authority under the recently passed Smith-Connally Act. The Smith-Connally Act was also called the War Labor Disputes Act and was passed in a rush ...
Who remembers Wendy Wards modeling classes at Montgomery Wards in Southgate?
You're “OLD WACO” if: You can remember either the Raleigh or the Roosevelt Hotel. You ever went to Williams Drug, Pipkin Drug, Otis Stahl Pharmacy, or Heights Pharmacy for a fountain drink or a "burger" at lunch. You remember watching Harley Berg, Marvel Russell, Dale Milford, Doug Brown, Dub King or Johnny Watkins on TV. You ever got a "Possum Grin" on the Uncle Elihu Show or a "Zebo Gram" from Zebo the Clown. You can remember the balconies at the Waco and the Orpheum Theaters, Saturday Kiddy Matinees at the 25th St. or Texas Theater, and how cold the AC was at the Imperial. You remember Mrs. Keaton's Bakery or Robertson's Ice Cream. You went to a drive-in movie at The Circle, The Waco or even The Lake Air. Extra points if you remember "no one" ever went to The Joy. You ever played pool at The Businessman's Club. Extra points if "Rabbit" racked 'em for you. You ever "bowled" on Austin Ave. , Franklin Ave. or even at South gate . You can remember what was in the basement at Montgomery Wards. You made ...
The Ralph Diaries~ Jan. 20 JANUARY 20 1967- San Antonio- Friday- Made a "45" on my Spanish semester test. My teacher, Mrs. Griffin, and I, do not like each other. Went to basketball practice. Babysat the kids while Mom and Dad went out to eat. 1968- San Antonio- Saturday- Got up at 8:00 AM and went to basketball practice. Mike Fischer and I went to Wonderland. Saw some girls we knew, had Cokes at The Peppermint Lounge. We listened to the jukebox. Showing off, I went over and turned up the volume, on the back of the jukebox, and we got kicked out. We went over to Montgomery Wards and looked at the motorcycles. Tonight, babysat for Brett Hunt from 8:30-1:30 AM. We watched "Mannix" and made banana splits. I made $2.50. Dad came back from Chicago. (Fischer, Kelley and I dreamed of owning a Montgomery Wards motorcycle. Pretty tame by today's standards, we used to sit on them, while waiting for our parents to pick us up at "Wonderland" on Saturdays. After being "Crossroads Mall" for the last 20 years or so, I h ...

For my Father: WATER Daddy’s back became arm became rod became line and a silver fly disappeared in silver mist like silent music. We were planted mid-stream. Stony Brook rushed around my legs in the pre-dawn as if they weren’t there. Daddy’s rod and reel was fiberglass fancy. It came apart and folded up zig-zag like a carpenter’s ruler from Montgomery Wards. And you could barely hear it spin. My bamboo pole was better for dropping in a pool, being still and thinking. Morning ground fog was thick but I knew every way in and out of Stony Brook for fish or human. I had changed its course with a dam, navigated it like Huck Finn’s Wide Mississip’ on a home-made raft that sank, watched a family of deer drink from it at dusk, pulled its leaches off my ankles, ice-skated from home to the bridge in town where Mother waited in the finned yellow station wagon to drive me back warm, and waded every inch to pan for gold or throw The Law off my varmint scent. I jabbed and draped and re-jabbed my live bait, ...

Today at 2:00 p.m. Rick and I will be married 25 years. Rick and I met while we were working at Montgomery Wards in Northeast Missouri in November 1983. We would go across the street to Jimmy’s Jigger after we got off work and hang out (IT WAS A BLAST; this is where I fell in love, funny a bar). After the warehouse closed and we were unemployed, Rick went to heating, cooling, and refrigeration school and got in the Sheet Metal Union and I went to business school. After we finished school and started working again we dated about 5 years then got married at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, June 11, 1988 at 2:00 p.m. with all our friends and family there. Rick, you told me a long time ago it was all about compromise and you were right. Rick, you have always been so good to me and (the only guy I dated my Dad liked). I don’t deserve you; (yes I do) I love you. Happy anniversary These are some of my favorite wedding photos I was rocking the Olivia Newton John hair (the side sweep) and my colors were peach (do . ...
Take as broad a spectrum approach as you’d like, but tell me what brought you to this place today; as a member of Bootleg. I met John in Aug of ’07 and we stayed in contact over the years with Gmail. We’ve talked about playing together pretty much since the start. He hit me up with this new band idea and it is a perfect fit and time. I’ve been out of the scene since Dec of ’08. These guys have pulled me from the ashes. Over 1625 days since I’ve rocked out full on. It’s time again.  What do you remember as your earliest influences that made you want to get into rock ‘n’ roll in the first place? I lived in southern Minnesota as a young kid and every once and while down at the corner store a 16 Magazine would be sitting there on the rack. Thumbing through it and seeing KISS, I knew I had to figure out some way to get associated with that. Years later at 15 I got my first guitar. Wine Red Les Paul copy from Montgomery Wards.  For those interested in the gear, want to get into what you’re ...
In loving memory of Carolyn Kay West was born on Dec. 24, 1938 in Shenandoah, the daughter of Coes Clark and Lois Lillie (Flynn) Stake. Carolyn entered into eternal peace on Monday, Nov. 5, 2012 at the Grape Community Hospital in Hamburg. Carolyn attended school in Shenandoah and graduated from Shenandoah High School. On Sept. 3, 1961 she was united in marriage to Duane Eldon West at the Congregational Church in Shenandoah. The couple made their home in Farragut. Carolyn worked for Montgomery Wards and was best known as the secretary and bookkeeper for Duane E. West Trucking. She was a member of the United Methodist Church in Farragut as well as a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She was a caring wife, mother, grandmother and sister. She loved to collect "things" and during the holiday seasons her home would always be beautifully decorated. The kids in Farragut loved to trick-or trick at Carolyn's home, because she always gave the best goodie bags! She was preceded in death by he ...
I did everything the way you are supposed. I was average, statistically speaking. I graduated high school and started college in the fall. I decided I would major in Music Theory and Composition. It was expected. I played alto saxophone, piano and sang. I numbly followed the path that was trod before me with the end destination being Music Teacher. I loved music. I loved and still love playing the alto saxophone. Still, I was not passionate about it. I longed for something to be passionate about and I searched it out like water in a desert. Ultimately, I dropped out of college. I was failing and miserable. I had every intention of returning to school. My plan was to work for the remainder of the semester at my old employer, Montgomery Wards, and then I would attend the local community college. I picked a few topics that interested me and decided I would take classes in those fields. So I set out with my goal in mind. Plan B was started and in full swing. I went to work faithfully and enjoyed a routine of ...
Thoughts From An Aging Pizza Evangelist Published in Daily Jeffersonian 03-03-2013 Remembering Downtown Cambridge as a Boy in the 1950's Many changes have taken place on Wheeling Avenue in the past sixty years or so. Things that I remember most was all the activity by pedestrians traversing east and west on the main street of Cambridge. Traffic, especially on Fridays, was bumper to bumper. You see, Wheeling Avenue was (and still is) on Route 40 the main route that traversed the country. There was no Interstate 70 at the time. Downtown Cambridge was busy, busy, busy. There were no shortage of stores in which to shop either. I remember J.C. Penny, Montgomery Wards, Davis Department Store, J.J. Newberry's, F.W. Woolworth, S.S. Kresge's, Roger's Jewelry, Bear's Furniture, Kaplan's Furniture, Army Navy Store, Alexander's Shoe Store, and Western Auto. I'm sure there were many more stores, but as a kid this is what I remember. There were restaurants galore on Wheeling Avenue starting with the Coney Island ...
Mmmm...Jon brought me dark chocolate nonpareils. I love those candies! I use to get them with my grandmother, at a candy counter, in SEARS, I believe it was. Or maybe it was Montgomery Wards??? Did they have a candy counter upstairs?
Out On The Pike At 6 degrees F and -11 F windchill it's too darn cold to be outside to do much of anything if you don't have too, and yes, I do know it's colder in other places. I'm tired, and I'm sore. I've had about two hours of sleep and I couldn't understand why it was being so rough. This morning I discovered I forgot to take my late medications. Sad news, but not horrible news, Gawain the indoor outdoor cats was in a terrible fight yesterday with a cat twice his size; the gray tiger that someone has dropped off out here. Gawain is tore up pretty bad but it's all superficial. He will heal with time, but right now he is hurting and sore. Ma and I brought him in the house. He stayed in our bedroom where he is safe from everyone else in the house. He is healing through sleep and Ma cleaning and applying antibiotics. We went to the meeting in Marion yesterday for our granddaughter. After the meeting we took her out for supper. She is working in the old Montgomery Wards building (remember them?) in Marion ...
well, sad news. My 30 year old sewing machine died. Tony took it apart and since parts would be involved and it came from Montgomery Wards, we decided to bury it *in the trash can, and I got a new one today so I am in the poor house again. I got a singer. Not too fancy, just wanted it to do the basics. It does some zig zag stitches if I want them. Lynn and I are into yarn by the skeins. Too bad we can't spend about a week just crocheting and knitting. Tony saw a hat I made and asked me to make him one, minus a tassle. The least I could do for him after all the honey do jobs he did for me today. Got new bulbs where they were burned out and the kitchen one would make a preacher cuss. Now I can see if I can get the dishes clean.
Montgomery Wards used to a major department store back in the day. It's now just a antiqua @ Montgomery Ward

In no particular order, here are just a few of the more interesting Christmas facts: 1. Christmas is a blending of the words "Christ" and "Mass". 2.

The needles of Christmas trees (pines, firs and spruces) are an excellent source of v . ...
The Real Story of Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer A man named Bob May, depressed and broken-hearted, stared out his drafty apartment window into the chilling December night. His 4-year-old daughter Barbara sat on his lap quietly sobbing. Bob's wife, Evelyn, was dying of cancer. Little Barbara couldn't understand why her mommy could never come home. Barbara looked up into her dad's eyes and asked, "Why isn't Mommy just like everybody else's Mommy?" Bob's jaw tightened and his eyes welled with tears. Her question brought waves of grief, but also of anger. It had been the story of Bob's life. Life always had to be different for Bob. Small when he was a kid, Bob was often bullied by other boys. He was too little at the time to compete in sports. He was often called names he'd rather not remember. From childhood, Bob was different and never seemed to fit in. Bob did complete college, married his loving wife and was grateful to get his job as a copywriter at Montgomery Wards during the Great Depression. Then he w ...

Today was a good day. Got up and went to Breakfast at the Doodle Cafe. Went and looked at a new car and did not like it. Took Sarah to get her Bountiful Basket. Brought her home and she took a nap. I loaded up a half a load of junk and took it to the dump so it does not get buried under the snow. Threw away my first lawnmower today at the dump. It was a Montgomery Wards mower and was 18 years old an only did not start twice while we lived in Oregon. Stopped at the hardware store and stopped at Maverik and got me a drink. Came home and and scraped the dirt level for the runners on my shed before the snow sets in in earnest. Its really a greasy mess out there in the MF. Sarah fixed Ravioli, orange/tomato/onion salad, homemade bread and some milk. I will read some in my Edmund Fitzgerald book and go to bed.

Just sitting here thinking about GG and how she was the queen of “Returns”. One of her favorite stores was Wieners. After wearing a pair of shoes for three days, I told GG the shoes hurt my feet. My grandmother wiped the bottom of my shoes with some Commit, took them back to Wieners and got me a new pair. She flashed her beautiful smile and told the clerk that the shoes had a manufacture defect and that the shoes almost crippled her grand baby. People probably thought we were rich because I had new stuff all the time. One of her other favorite stores was Joskees (before it was Dillard’s); she had to have her “Daniel Green” house shoes in off white. It was like a holiday just to ride with her to Montgomery Wards and Sears. Life was simple back then…………
