For more than 50 years, the Colorado Supply Company operated in Pueblo just a few blocks west of the CF&I steelworks and managed branch outlets in the company mining districts. Offering items for sale including clothing, pharmacy, hardware, groceries, baked goods, and a newsstand, the store served as a “one stop shop” for employees and their families. This exhibit highlights the history of the store using collections from private collectors, the Pueblo County Historical Society, and the Steelworks Center of the West, and features dozens of 3-dimensional 1920s and 1930s period pieces similar to those once sold in the store.
The exhibit is on display now, but you can join us on Saturday, December 17, 2016 from 11:00-2:00 as we formally open “Everything for Everybody: The Colorado Supply Company Store” exhibit. Light refreshments will be served.
