Remember when

W.T. Grant Co.’s department store was located at 709-711 Franklin St. in Michigan City, and is pictured here in 1941. The company owned a chain of stores that operated from 1906 to 1976, when the company filed bankruptcy partly due to the company’s failure to change with the growth of the suburbs and changes in shopping habits. The in-house brand name was Bradford.
