Thats correct dfife the Building 19 on Hanover Street was never a Zayre store. The Zayre checkout fixtures used at this location now came from a fixture acquisition.

I have yet to find photo's of Zayre department store on Elm Street. I remember it as Zayre and then Ames until the location closed it's doors. It was only a few years before the Verizon center was built to bring some well needed nightlife into the city.
Here are a couple of pictures of the Verizon center formerly home to Zayre department store.

This Big Lots store in Champaign, Illinois looks to be a former Zayre location.

I have found in Indianapolis a old Zayre location on hiway 31 east street  its a flea market now but still reatins most of the original interior  the burnt orange colors even the snack bar booth seating  also the fire extinguishers are from the zayre days  I dont think that this location was ever converted to ames   the old back stock areas and sheving on the outside walls are still intact  definitly a time warp  and not sure how much they will change it  the outside is being redone but the slanted roof still survives

October 8th, 1969. Grand Opening. Zayre Owner standing outside of Hanover Park, Illinois location at Tradewinds Shopping Center. The plaza opened the year before in 1968.







December 11th, 1976. Unknown Zayre in Massachusetts during repeal of Blue Laws



Anyone recognize which location this is based on the background building? It probably became an Ames.

I was in the cementary (practicing photography skills)about 75 feet away from the old Zayre Plaza was and was amazed to see this under my feet! http://www.flickr.com/photos/82768625@N04/8040512582/in/photostream/

I once saw a picture online of that former Zayre on Elm that was turned into a Staples I believe.  That being said, finding that bag is unbelivable!  Is it really possible that this bag stayed there for more than 20 years??

From what little I ever saw of Zayres, no, I would not call them real similiar. I guess I was only in one once. It was larger and more upscale than any Ames I'd been in. They were building a new Zayres not too far from here when Ames bought them out; I can't remember if it opened as a Zayre or an Ames, but it was certainly the nicest Ames I ever set foot in. (Salisbury, MD) I would say that was the direction Ames needed to go in, upscale instead of "dumpy", but maybe that's wrong. Earlier tonight I was at the local Roses, a store that was once more "upscale" than Ames and is now truly third-rate...but they seem to be doing quite well as a third-rater, surviving against Wal-Mart & co. I don't know that Ames could have ever out-marted Wal-mart (nor could Zayre).

All Ames did in the business world was what is called big fish eats small fish they wanted less competion they decided to buy out the competion

Not sure where but I thought I read somewhere that the big building (now split into about 15 different very small stores) in the parking lot of this Zayre was once a Two Guys store. So that means there also may have been a Jefferson Ward and then a Bradlees on the site.
