McCrory’s variety store closes, 1981

Alan Combs, a McCrory’s employee, stacked fountain stools at the recently closed store prior to shipping them to a buyer in Columbus, Ohio, in January 1981. The variety store at 110 E. Main Street had closed. “It’s just another case of high rent, low sales,” said Bob Donahue, manager. Donahue said McCrory’s had no plans to open another store in Lexington. McCrory Corp. also owned H.L. Green’s, a store at 236 W. Main Street and there were no plans to close that store at the time. Photo by David Perry | Staff
