Glick’s Furniture and the Damarin Block (c. 1965)

“Buy your furniture at Glick’s on Second Street,” so sang Zeke Mullins on WPAY. Glick’s Furniture opened its doors in 1936 and closed in 1976, having made the Damarin Block at Court and Second Streets its home for some forty years. Named for Augustus Damarin, its original owner, the three story red brick building was constructed in 1895, with the ground floor designed for retail, the second for offices, and the third as a “handsome and commodious hall.”
