Abstract:
Roses, opened in 1915, experienced an economic wilting by the early nineties, which necessitated its bankruptcy filing. In 1995, the Variety Wholesalers-owned chain blossomed anew with a narrowed marketing approach. This approach bore fruit in the opening of stores in Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, and the prospect of opening 30-40 new stores annually.

Abstract:
For Henderson, the word roses can remind natives of a common surname in town. Two native sons most associated with the name: Charlie Rose, longtime host of the TV program “CBS This Morning”; Paul Rose, founder of the department store that opened in 1915. The word can also prompt reminders of Henderson’s blossoming economic development, in establishment of businesses like Iams Pet Foods and a Durham semiconductor firm, Semprius.
