MAY COMPANY DONATES DOWNTOWN STORE ARTIFACTS TO WESTERN RESERVE HISTORICAL SOCIETY

 CLEVELAND, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- May Company announced today a donation of artifacts from its historic downtown Cleveland store to the Western Reserve Historical Society. The store, a fixture on Public Square since 1899, is set to be closed Saturday, Jan. 23.
 The donation, which includes photographs, store plans, signs, ledgers, and advertising from years past, "represents an overview of the store's history from its founding to present day," stated May Company Ohio Chairman, Steven Douglass.
 Thomas Hogan, president & CEO of May Ohio, also said "the donation will include the bell at the Heights store which is at the corner of Warrensville Heights and Cedar Roads." The bell was once housed in the Downtown store prior to its expansion in 1931 and moved to the Heights when the store was built, in 1957.
 Kermit J. Pike, Western Reserve Historical Society Library Director was pleased with the donation. "This is certainly an important addition to our collection, and while we'll miss the May Company name, we truly appreciate the opportunity to save these memories for all Clevelanders to enjoy."
 The Historical Society plans to first organize and catalog the May Company donation. Pike said, "We've got 94 years of history to sort through, but once we've finished, key pieces will be put on display as soon as possible."
