Rice Village history in Historic Houston Posted July 31, 2018 On 6/9/2018 at 3:59 PM, 57Tbird said: The large store you mention between Times and Amherst could have been Rodney's. I'm an old timer who frequented that area in the mid-50's. That was it. My Mom used to work there when I was a kid. Knew Leonard Wells from there. Later opened his own men's store in the Galleria area (Fowler and Wells).
