    The Jones Store Company, founded in 1887 in Stafford, Kan., by Mr. and Mrs. J. Logan Jones, began business in the Kansas City area in 1890 near 5th and Minnesota, Kansas City, Kansas.

    The store moved across the river to 6th and Main in 1895 and four years later it was destroyed by fire. The final move was to 12th and Main.

    Employees in 1902 ranged from 700 during the quiet period to 1,200 during the busy season.

    By the late 1930s Jones had grown to be Kansas City's largest department store, despite its antiquated building. A multimillion-dollar remodeling and expansion project was completed in 1958.
