Thompson Dept. Store

I just purchased my second piece of advertising for the Thompson Department Store. Can you give me any background on where this store was located and when it was in operation? If you don’t know specific can you steer me in the direction of where I might look for the information. Thanks, Wendy

Wendy, the only information I have on a Thompson is the J.B. Thompson & Son’s store in Northwood, Iowa. The general store was founded by John Thompson in 1873. Throughout the years, the business changed in name to: Thompson & Lund, Thompson, Lund & Sime and finally. J.B. Thompson & Son’s. Thompson’s businees consisted of yard goods, clothing & shoes. You can contact the Worth county Historical Society in Iowa for further information. Hope this helps. Al Kohlman
