Tuesday Morning has recently announced a bankruptcy which of course includes a store closing that has multiple Houston area locations on the list. Today we’re looking at 5442 Weslayan, which has an interesting lineage beyond being Houston’s oldest operating Tuesday Morning. This Tuesday Morning originally opened in 1989, a bit late compared to the first Houston area locations, which opened in 1975, only a year after the chain was established in Dallas. Tuesday Morning’s earliest stores were like this example, small cutouts of subdivided space. The store space at this location was originally the back end of a W.T. Grant location. Grants was the anchor at this end and Weingarten’s at the other. The site had initially been slated to be developed by Victor Gruen as America’s first indoor mall; however, this wouldn’t come to pass. W.T. Grant would close this locaiton prior ot their bankruptcy, to convert into a regional office for their ill-fated credit department. It seems that around this time, the Tuesday Morning space was created in the subdivision of the office space. The rest of the store would serve multiple purposes, such as an auction house and music store until finally settling on Petco in 1996.
