CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY
COLLINS CREDIT CLOTHING STORE
The Collins Clothing Store, where you could buy a suit on credit for a dollar down payment, was at 901 Broadway, the corner of Broadway and Spruce Street, from the 1930s through the 1960s. David Diamond managed the business in the 1930s, after World War II, Henry Laikin and Ray Rickards ran the business.
The Collins Store did not survive the 1960s. Declining economic conditions and the vandalism and looting that became known as the riot of 1967 made business impossible for many of the old Broadway merchants. By 1970 the business was no longer listed in the telephone book.
