Brunswick, GA
Atlanta, GA
The Kress in Brunswick was built in 1909. In 1930, Edward F. Sibbert enlarged and remodeled the building. The store became a McCrory's in 1980. When this photo was taken in 2009, the building was partially occupied by Wachovia Bank. The rest of the building was vacant. For more, see this website. [map]

This Kress in Atlanta appears to be from the 1930s. There is a former McCrory's department store next door. There was three other Kress stores in Atlanta. I believe they have been demolished. [map]
