Flashback Minis: Mrs. Claus Outfit Honors Strouss Department Store

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Strouss Department Store used to get into the holiday spirit as Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus participated in the annual Thanksgiving parade.

The Claus couple made their annual appearance during the parade until Strouss shut down in 1986.

Today, the Mrs. Claus outfit is kept at the Tyler History Center downtown. It honors one of the most well-known department stores in the city history.
