Department stores have long been a shopper’s choice destination for nearly one-stop shopping, but their overall popularity has declined over the past few decades with the rise of big-box stores and online shopping. Jacobson’s was one such department store. Founded in 1838, the chain was never particularly big, but it had loyal shoppers a good business for a number of years. Very few stores can say they lasted in business for over a century and a half but Jacobson’s could. The Jacobson’s brand tried to keep up with competition from Macy’s and Nordstrom and such, so they changed their store hours and expanded their inventory, but all was for naught. The company ultimately filed for bankruptcy in 2002, and despite an attempt at the last hurrah, all stores had been closed officially by 2011.
