1969 and WASHINGTON SQUARE is enlarged into a 532,500 square foot facility. Sears has been joined by a second anchor department store, added to the south end of the complex.
The south anchor of WASHINGTON SQUARE was built as a Louisville-based Stewart Dry Goods (a.k.a. Stewart's). That store opened in 1969. The building is depicted here as it appeared during its 6-year stint as an L.S. Ayres. The Indy-based chain rebranded the Stewart's store in 1985.
