Pearson’s department store is pictured in June 1948. Located at 122 E. Heron, it specialized in women’s and chiildren’s clothing from the early 1940s to about 1981. It closed when the South Shore Mall opened and didn’t make the transition to the Mall like JC Penney did. The building was later the Aberdeen location of Clevenger’s secondhand store, stood vacant for awhile and is now being renovated by John Yonich, who also renovated the D&R Theater next door.
