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.

Weaver's department store employee Ginny Weygint uses the store's 1930s pneumatic tubes, which run throughout the building, to send some billing information to the office on the third floor.
