Foley's Downtown - Wohl Shoe Clerical 1972

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Johnson L Tommie on July 6, 2009

Foley's was my first clerical job working in the Wohl Shoe Clerical Dept under the supervision of Betty Kenne. The room was no bigger than a 4x4 just large enough for 4-5 working stations back to back. I was 19 years old and new to the city. Before becoming a regular employee I gave out cologne samples as a teenager and wouldn't you know I would be working there as an employee when I finished business school. The store was setup beautifully. There was excitement when you looked around, as though you were seeing decorations for the very first time, I was. It was beautiful marketing and advertising.
Needless to say, I only stayed a year. The room was too small and confining and the closeness of the workers was a bit too overwhelming. But I will always remember the store as Foley's Downtown.
