Wallet card at Thom McAn

The first Thom McAn store opened in New York in 1922. Named after a famous Scottish golfer, the casual footwear chain peaked at almost 2,000 locations nationwide before declining in the 1980s and 1990s. The last Thom McAn store closed in 1996, though shoes with the brand name still sell in other outlets today. Old Thom McAn signs can still be seen at their former locations throughout the country, including this partially obscured floor sign in Freeport, NY.

Here is a photo of the store in the 1970s. Next door was Florsheim, another shoe store that sold more higher-end footwear.

  1. You should've slid that mat over a little more. The old photo is cool, I'm more interested in the Concord Music store though.
