  1. Wasn't the Café on Third Floor Main known as The Hawthorne Room?

  2. Is there any way to find Jones Store television commercials from the 1960's? My brother & I were in quite a few of them and I would love to find them.

  3. This wasn't the layout when I worked there in th 80's. You had Walnut level, which housed home goods, crystal, and fine china. Then 1st floor, which was Mens, Fragrence, Jewelry, children's, linens and women's hosiery. 2nd floor was all women's wear. 3rd floor was furniture and meeting rooms, and 4th floor was offices.

    Yes, the cafeteria was The Hawthorne Room was on 1st floor, and J. Logan Jones restaurant was on Walnut level.

  4. I miss Jones', Federated didnt help it and MDF and was the death knell, no more fur salon, the best china dept in the 4 state area slowly died till it was a shadow of its former self. I remeber when they had real antiques and such for their display areas and fresh flowers in cosmetics. And some of the best service from its long time employees, phone calls with new arrivals....Now they are all the tacky "New" Macys.

  5. I agree with anon, jones was a great store, miss downtown store. the macys stores are just glorified penneys. miss Woolf bros, Harzfelds and swansons and now jack henry is gone. the only local store left is Halls.

  6. Is there any way to find out whether or not someone worked at the downtown jones store? I am trying to find out about someone who I think was an employee there back in the late 60's?

  7. Wow..just stumbled on this .I have so many memories of the old DT . It was a treat for us to ride the bus and spend the day there. The dolls in the Hartsfield window made Christmas come alive.
    I actually worked there in the cosmetics counter in the late 80 early 90
    Those were the days...Tammy Dozier Arlington Texas
