Many thanks to Matt B. for sending along these great photos from 1986. On August 5, 2009 he wrote:
"I was on your website "Towers Department Stores", I noticed that there was a question mark(?) about a Towers Department Store being in Dartmouth Cole Harbor. I can confirm that at one time there use to be a Towers Department Store in Dartmouth Cole Harbor.
Many of the original Towers employees are still working there!
From what I can gather the original store was built in the late 1980's (around 1987), for a few years it was a Towers store, but it was turned into a Zellers around 1991.
How I came across these photos is that I am a employee at the store (currently Zellers), in the employee lounge underneath a TV stand we have some photo albums of photos taken in and around the store over the past 20 or so years. One lunch break I sorted through all of the pictures and albums and copied that ones that had to do with Towers.
I hope you find these photos interesting and helpful! By all means... feel free to post any of these on your website!
