The faade of Blake & Ford, which closed earlier this year after 68 years of business. The shop first opened on DeKalb Street in 1949 and moved to this location on Broad Street in 1963. Today, the shop is opening up for one last time to sell off what remains of its inventory of office furniture and equipment. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
Today, just a few steps up Broad Street from the main intersection with DeKalb Street in downtown Camden, Blake & Ford is clearing out what’s left of its inventory -- a final chance to say good-bye to nearly 70 years worth of customers. Blake & Ford actually closed months ago, back on March 31. Owners Bill Blake and Bill Ford held a clearance sale June 1 and 2, but still ended up with a bit of inventory to deal with.
