Winns Store Reunion

Employees from the Winns store in Fairfield share their memories of customers, co-workers and the environment they worked in.

Thora Atkinson: I went to lunch and I was the only one there on this particular day and the lady on, one of the ladies on the dress materials came over to help. And she — a young couple came in and they wanted a specimen vase. And this lady, she didn't know what a specimen vase was so she showed them an aluminium chamber (laughter), and they just smiled and said, ‘no thanks that's just not what we want.’
