Indianola in Warren County, Iowa — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
106 North Howard
After Mr. Metcalf, the grocery came under the management of Scanland & Lewis. Many newspaper ads referred to their business as "The Only East Side Grocers." In 1949, the Fair Store relocated to this address from the north side of the square. The store was the first to offer ready to wear clothing for solely women in Indianola — replacing dressmaking shops of earlier times.
After the Fair departed, Dodd's Clothing Store became the next resident of the storefront. Dodd's did not stay but for a few years and was replaced by Joan's Children's Clothing Store. The children's clothing business was very successful and finally closed after twenty-five years at this address in 1987.
