The Bry's garage is still on Front St. The store actually had 2 buildings with an alley between the two. As you entered on Front St, you could go thru and across the alley to the other building. The shoe dept was the 1st "dept" as you entered. They had an "X-Ray" machine to check proper fit of shoes! The main entrance was on Main St. The building was bought and enlarged by Lowenstein's, then became condos. 99 Tower's ,I believe. I still have my aunt's metal credit card from Bry's. Most of my school clothes came from Bry's, as well as Gerber's . Many good memories of that store.
