Dinostore discovered alive in Mississippi

Reeds of Tupelo, Mississippi is one of the last "dinostores" -- downtown department stores left from another age of retailing. The Northeast Mississippi Journal has a good long article about the store and the family that owns it.

Maybe the revitalization that's helped so many small downtowns across the nation will enable these retailers to survive and prosper. There certainly seems to be a niche available for upper-end stores in rural towns. The Peebles chain is one that has prospered in that role.
