Ambridge trivia: Did you know...? #7 Davidson's

Davidson's Department Store once had two locations in Ambridge.

Milady's Style Parade and Recipe Book for 1935

I don't know when the 1329 Merchant St. store closed, but the 510 Merchant St. store closed in 1976.

    having lived in the area of 13th & 14th st on merchant st, since 1936 or 1937 since age 4 or 5 years old, i do not ever remember seeing a davidsons store at the address shownon 13th & merchant, they may have closed late 1930s or soon after the 1935 adv. shown. i have shopped & purchased many things from the 5th st store, mostly after i graduated school in 1950,till 1954, never could afford it before that. besides dad was a great tailor & he made many of my pants & suits for church events,

    for everyone in ambridge that knew me & my wife Karen, i have bad news, she passed away oct 4th after 54 years of marriage, she had a soft spot for my ambridge, just because she loved me & my family there.

    best regards to all, johnny
