Bangor's Freese's department store chain opened its first location in 1892, with an AIRPORT MALL branch being dedicated in 1970.

Here we see the former mallway entry into the AIRPORT MALL Freese's. After that store closed, its space was divided between Staples, Weight Watchers and Fashion Bug. The latter closed in early 2013 and was replaced by Bangor Discount Mattress & Furniture.
