The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum in Midtown Monday announced it is postponing its Rich’s Lenox Square reunion, set for Tuesday, until Feb. 4 due to the threat of snow.
The event is part of a series of Reunion Nights to coincide with the Springs Street museum’s ongoing exhibit, “Return to Rich’s: The Story Behind the Store,” chronicling the iconic Atlanta-based department store. The Feb. 4 reunion will include both the Lenox Square and South DeKalb Mall locations.
The evenings are designed to create a meeting place for past Rich’s employees, shoppers and friends to reconnect and share stories about their favorite store experiences. Each event will feature a docent-led tour and refreshments. The extensive exhibit not only features a picture and text story with artifacts, but includes interactive touch recordings by friends, staff and devotees.
Rich’s was a revered department store retail chain, headquartered in Atlanta that operated in the South from 1867 until 2005, when it was absorbed into Macy’s. The founding Rich family reached out to connect with the larger community and statewide customers to become a legend in retail.
The Rich’s exhibit runs through May 27 and is open daytime hours to the general public Sunday through Friday with the special reunion evenings extended to 6 to 8 p.m. Ticket prices are $12 for adults, $8 for seniors and free to museum members.
