Frederick & Nelson was a department store that had a lot to offer, but for Christmas in 1978 it was all about the Haggar Clothing for men. As everyone know, one thing Santa likes more than a child who has been good all year, is a well dressed man, and Frederick & Nelson and Haggar know how to make Santa very happy jolly ol’ elf.
I never got to shop at Frederick & Nelson. They went out of business in 1992, well before I got out of New Jersey. Their flagship location, which is now a Nordstrom in downtown Seattle, has drawn my attention since I learned about this storied department store that got its start here in 1891. I will walk around the place trying to find hints of the old store based on photos that I find at places like The Department Store Museum. If you live in the Seattle area or are planning a visit, why not check it out?
