Hammers Purchases Former Children Store

Posted by wlpo on December 3, 2011

If you grew up in La Salle, there’s a chance your mother once bought you a new dress or sweater from Gloria’s Children Shop.  The store has been closed for years and until recently the merchandise remained in the downtown La Salle storefront.

Gary Hammers purchased the two-story building this week. While walking through the now empty space, he  says he envisions for an upstairs apartment.

Water damage has left the ceiling and floor damaged but Hammers says they’ll be able to remove that and install insulation.

He wants to attract a business to fill the first floor that ‘s not quite the same without the racks of clothing.  The old linoleum tile floor will likely be covered when he gets a tenant, and the tin ceiling could be restored.

Hammers owns other buildings on First Street, including the former Jupiter’s and La Salle National Bank.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
