NOSTALGIA - JUST A PART OF OUR HISTORY

2010   THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES

Your Museum collects information and artifacts about everyday life in the San Fernando Valley at different eras. Do you recall FedCo Membership Department Stores?  By selling to its "members" at wholesale, such big-box stores helped undermine traditional family owned retail stores such as the respected Hughes Markets grocery stores.

Remember FEDCO? You bet. I'm still using some witch hazel and dental floss I bought there! Do you happen to remember when they closed?
