Courtesy Home Center (Commercial, 1984)


Before such stores as Home Depot, Lowe's, and Menard's came to the scene here in the Chicago area there was Courtesy Home Center. I'm sure there were stores around the Chicago area but right now I mostly have memories of stores such as one that formerly stood on 95th and Stony Island (replaced by a shopping center than includes a Jewel grocery store) and there is another one on Pulaski near Archer Avenue just south of the Midway Orange Line.

I wonder why that store closed down. Perhaps I can find the full story eventually.

I just bought a piece of furniture that had tagsfrom there. It actually had tags from courtesy home center. 16 cent tags 😊
