Fashion Fair Question (Foxmoors)

~
Do you remember the Country Boys Market with its wooden floors? Walter Smiths was the place to go for clothes on the Fulton Mall. Penny Candy had great blacklight posters and don't forget Whitie's Pet Store on Blackstone. What vintage retail do you remember growing up in Fresno?

Fashion Fair Question (Foxmoors)

Post by katiedidnt » Thu Jul 07, 2011 7:58 am

There was a store in the FF Mall in the mid to late 70s.
They sold teen clothes, like little rabbit fur coats, satin jackets, terry cloth short-short outfits, etc. (as I type this I feel like I am describing a prostitute's wardrobe!) It was located near the Tinder Box (tobacco shop), not too far from the giant gold clock in the middle of the mall.
Does anyone remember the name of the store? Does anyone even remember it? Maybe it was all a dream?

Are you thinking of Foxmoor? The other teen-type stores I can think of are Bobbie West and Contempo (but I don't know if Contempo was there in the 70s).

Are you maybe thinking of Lerners? I know I used to buy most of my clothes there as a teen in the 70s.

Foxmoor's! Right near the Tinder Box. If I was lucky I got to buy something from there at the start of the schoolyear. They had the best clothes/brands, and most expensive in the mall. I used to go to Lerner's all the time...cheap, cute, but not anywhere near the joy of Foxmoor's!

There was a postcard for Fashion Fair that has a photo of the place and how it looked in the 70s. The image is of the fountain with the clock in the center were santa would be. I think i might have a scan of it, when I find the image i'll share it here.
