Did You Know… what kind business this was, and where it was located? This is a men’s clothing store. Stern & Field location on 2nd Street later became Lord’s Clothing. There was a men’s store at that location for over 100 years, with Bailey’s prior to Sterns. I worked at Stern & Fields in the late 50s and early 60s. This is also where you could purchase Boy and Cub Scout uniforms. This photo is from the time prior to the remodel and addition of the Sentry Shop. Much of my love for Perry’s history came from my coworker at Sterns, Harold Reel. Many of the things I learned about the retail business and how to treat a customer, I learned from the owner Morris Stern.
