July 3, 1977
The front window of J.J. Newberry Co., 1105 Tower Ave., Superior, which is reportedly to close July 31. (News-Tribune photo)
I had never heard of it before researching this photo, but apparently J.J. Newberry was a chain of several hundred five-and-dime stores across the U.S. It is now defunct, according to its Wikipedia entry – though the Superior store, if it in fact closed in 1977, was a fairly early casualty. The chain apparently existed well into the 1990s.
Do you have any memories of J.J. Newberry? Feel free to post a comment.
Here are some zoomed-in views of the sales posted in the windows:
