Does anyone out there have any remembrances
of Fuhrmans' department store in past years
I think it closed around 2000 or 2001 and
I was there for its' final days and had had
some good conversations with the owner whose
name I can't recall but I know he loved
to ride motercycles. He told me about the
good old days in the 40s'-50s'-60s before
the "Mall" and superstores closed up all the
Mom and pop stores around the country.
Whenever we were in town we would always drop
in -- to bad it is no more.
Has a new store opened in its' place?

Furhrman's department store was on main street. Does anyone remember the store named Paul's. They sold jeans in that store.

The owners had a daughter named Allison Pinders (i think that is the correct spelling) I went to school with her at Springfield High School. She moved away from Springfield as I did. The last I heard was that she died. Not sure what from.

Fuhrman's department store was owned by my uncle Will. He had 3 sons, 2 of whom worked at the store. I remember going there as a child in the 1950's when I lived in Riverdale. It was a great store - they don't have anything like it now. I remember the basement where the floors were uneven because of a flood - don't know if you noticed. The employees were all super nice. I loved going there with my mother. It was at 231st & Broadway. Miss those days.
