ZUCKIES LADIES READY TO WEAR. After losing his lease in the Clewell Building on February 1, 1992, Harvey ZUCKERMAN, president of the Estes Corporation, chose to close the family owned business. Zuckies was opened by Zuckerman's father, Meyer Zuckerman, in 1931 above the Hartig drug store. In the mid-1930s it moved to 635 Main Street and then in 1970 to the Nesler Center. It remained there for seven years before relocating to the Clewell Building. The three employees who were working at Zuckies were moved to STEVENS SMARTWEAR in KENNEDY MALL.
