PLEASE NOTE:  This page is currently under construction. 

As many Central Californians already know, long-time department store chain Gottschalks is in liquidation, and soon will be closing their doors for good.  Carolina once worked part-time for the Valley Plaza-Bakersfield store during the 1980s-1990s, and in the 1970s when it was known as Brock's Department Store.  More history about the store will be added, along with photos.  Stay tuned!

If anyone can provide more information, please email: info@carolinacotton.org and let us know. Do you have any memories of Carolina working at Brocks or Gottschalks? Drop us a line...share your story with us!
