Do you have shopping memories of Hovland-Swanson?
Feel free to share them. “Nebraska’s fashion center” is our next Perfect Match Contest topic.
A half-century ago, Hovland-Swanson Department Store was one of the anchors of the downtown shopping scene. It occupied three floors when it opened its new downtown location in 1959 at 1230 O St., after 20 years at 1240 O St. Hovland-Swanson would later open a Gateway Mall branch in 1972.
Share your memories of Hovland-Swanson (no more than 150 words, please) by next Friday, April 24 and send to:
