The Broadway - Korrick's, Phoenix, Arizona

Korrick's original 3-story building was next to the
Dorris-Hayman building which housed its
competitor, Goldwater's, just visible to the left.
By the 1940s, the building was expanded to the east,
and gained a fourth floor.

In 1957, a fifth and sixth floor was added,
and the whole store was thoroughly modernized.
Korrick's was the last holdout among local
department stores as downtown Phoenix
declined in the 1950s and 1960s, lasting
until 1966, by which time Goldwater's and
Diamonds had moved their flagship stores
to Park Central.

  2. Hi BAK I was just wondering if you would be willing to share your Korrick's building shot? I work with GateWay Community College and I'd like to use the pic. for our timeline. The building was donated to the school in the late 60s. I have a few high res images of the building as well, but without the Korrick's signage. If so, please email me at: elizabethcurran80@gmail.com. Thanks so much! -Liz

  3. Hi! I just purchased a beautiful coat at an estate sale. It is marked Valley of the sun fashions Korricks Phoenix. Just thought you might be interested!

  4. The Broadway building at Fiesta Mall in Mesa stood until shortly after the Macy's/Robinsons-May acquisition, at which time Macy's moved to the much-smaller Rob-May building (around 2006-2007). There are a few pictures of the old Fiesta Mall Broadway building on Google (from 2007, when the building was razed), with its white exterior and the massive red glazed tile arch over the entrance. The store was beautiful and fairly recently renovated when the building closed. I know several people who worked in that store, and it was very high-end for that area, with designer goods and many finer brands.

  5. Hello - just wanted to say thanks for the pictures of Korrick's. My grandfather, Raymond J. McClanahan, was the shoe buyer for Korrick's from the mid 1920s to about 1952 when he retired. Although I did not know him, my mother talked a lot about him and visiting Korrick's while she was growing up in Phoenix in the 30s and 40s. Great to finally see some pics! Thanks again!

  6. Coronado Center had the same downsizing of the store. The Broadway was re-branded Macy's and when Macy's purchased May Company the Foley's store was re-branded Macy's and the Broadway store was shuttered. It was a far larger store than the Foley store. Guess Macy's does not have much faith in the New Mexico market as Dillard's has two large anchors across the street at the competing mall
