For more than a century, Des Moines Younkers was an Iowa destination. The store boasted dazzling shopping spaces, and its Tea Room became a legendary spot for food, fashion shows, and theater nights. Join us as Vicki Ingham traces the history of the store. Ingham is the author of Younkers: The Friendly Store, a history of the department store chain. She’ll highlight some of the “firsts,” features, and services that made the store so popular.
