So this arrived in the mail the other day: A catalog from Montgomery Ward! I didn’t even know they were still around. Some of you may remember that there used to be a MW store where Belle Square is now, and then they moved to the building that now houses Hobby Lobby. Actually, I believe they originally had a store on 5th Ave. in La Crosse. Turns out it’s not the original Wards that’s still around. The original Montgomery Wards closed all their stores in 2001. The current company is an online retailer that bought the Wards name. But this is the first time I’ve ever seen a catalog from them, and I didn’t even know they were online. Maybe they’d better advertise on KICKS 106.3!
So did you know they were still around? And have you shopped online form them at all?
