The Kress Building

The Kress Building, built in 1932 at 1109 Broadway, is a two-story masonry Mission Revival-influenced commercial edifice with a rectangular plan and a flat roof.

The Samuel H. Kress Co., a national retail corporation founded in 1896 and based in New York, already had 23 buildings across Texas when it took advantage of railway expansion into the South Plains and began plans for a Lubbock store in 1931.

The Kress Co. operated the “five-and-dime” store until 1975. Goodwill Industries purchased the building and continues to use it for retail purposes.
