McLaughlin’s Department Store celebrates 40 years

NORWICH – It’s been 40 years since McLaughlin’s Department Store first opened its doors in the City of Norwich. Opening in 1975, the store has been a staple of Norwich’s busy downtown area.



This year the owners of McLaughlin’s are doing something special to commemorate this milestone. The owners, husband and wife Scott and Anna McLaughlin along with Scott’s brother Mark McLaughlin, said that they wanted to do something fun for the community and give back as a thanks for the 40 wonderful years that they have had in Norwich. This year they are throwing a Block Party on Saturday June 13. The party will take place behind the store kicking off at 10 a.m.

McLaughlin’s Norwich store was opened in November of 1975 by Mark and Scott’s father, Spencer McLaughlin. Spencer had previously been working with his father at their location in Waterville, NY, which actually opened in 1955. Spencer bought the store at its current location from the Montgomery-Ward Dept Store.
