Old blends with new at 156-year-old Weaver’s department store
With 156 years of continuous operation, Weaver’s may well be the oldest store of its kind in Kansas and one of just a handful of similar stores left in the country. In addition to its positioning in vibrant downtown Lawrence, Weaver’s attributes its longevity to its people, products and prices.
