365,000 sq.ft. department store spanning most of the block. Previously home to a smaller three story Sattler's store, among a row of 2-3 story commercial and residential buildings.
Demolished in August 1987. Now a parking lot for a closed business, with a suburban style Aldi's in one corner.
- 1889 - Sattler's was founded by 17-year-old John G. Sattler when he opened a one-room shoe store in his mother's home at 992 Broadway. That store would eventually become Sattler's main store.
- 1950 - By 1950, it had expanded to cover 6 acres and a 365,000-square-foot flagship store.
- 1982 - By 1982 when it closed, the Sattler's chain was owned by United Department Stores.
- 1987 - The flagship store was razed and replaced with a K-Mart, which subsequently closed in 2002.
Recent Events and Actions Taken
- 2002 - The K-Mart that demolished the Sattler closes after just 15 years in business, leaving an empty eyesore behind a large unused lot.
- 2012 - An Aldi's was built in the parking lot of the shuttered K-Mart building. Their original plan was to replace the K-Mart building, before they built in front of it. Despite community pressure to build to the curb, as Sattler's had been, Aldi's was built with a suburban set back.
