Lord's Mugs, Magnets and Prints

Lord's momentos are flying off the shelf.

 

Medfield (and beyond) is all a-buzz because the town's famed Lord's Department Store is closing for good on Feb. 28. 

Historically, the store has not been a fan of self-promotion and has not had "Lord's" branded merchandise for sale.

But times are changing...

"It seemed the moment the word got out about the store closing, I’ve had a flood of requests from people coming into the store looking for souvenirs,” Nancy Kelly-Lavin (who runs the store with her brother Tom Kelly) told Patch earlier this month.

That prompted the creation of the first-ever Lord's t-shirt (the last day to order is Feb. 1) and now there are a few more ways to remember the store and its iconic neon sign:

  • Lord's magnets ($4.99 each)
  • Lord's watercolor prints ($19.95 each)
  • Lord's coffee mug ($14.95)

The mug, which just arrived this week, has a photo of the store along with the years 1940-2013 on the front, and on the back of the mug is the Warrior logo along with this list: 

  • Warrior Headquarters
  • Soda Fountain
  • Toys
  • Midnight Madness
  • Candy
  • Tonic
  • Medfield School Kits
  • Holiday Headquarters

Proceeds from the sale of souveniers will go toward a scholarship fund in the name of , whom Kelly-Lavin says "is still the heart and soul of Lord’s."
