Highrise Tower Posted October 8, 2022 Share Posted October 8, 2022 I was browsing the newspaper The Texan dated November 14, 1956 and came across a business ad for Meyer Bros. Department Store located at At Bellaire Blvd. At 3rd St. (Presumably 5002 Bellaire Blvd.) I believe this was a stand a lone building? The current site has a Walgreens. The original building must have been demolished. A little confused about the history of the Meyer Bros. They created two businesses? One was a department store (Meyer Bros.) and the other was a grocery store/market called The White House? There are countless advertisements for Meyer Bros. in the 50s and 60s. If I find a cool ad I'll post it. Pretty much all the same though. Any HAIFers have memories here? Do share!! I found a location list of Meyer Bros. locations. See the below quote.
