S.S. Kresge Company opened in the late 1920’s and remained open until the mid 1980’s. A favorite downtown destination for generations of Manitowoc residents, Kresge’s was a “dime store” that featured a wide variety of everyday merchandise at low prices. 60 years ago a photo was taken to celebrate the newly remodeled lunch counter, famous for their pies, grilled cheese, and cherry cokes.
