Arnold Constable



Among my earliest childhood memories are being dragged by my mother to “the stores”. At that time, the malls had not
yet arrived in Bergen County New Jersey so people still went “downtown” which in our case meant Main Street in Hackensack. Not yet in Kindergarten, I visited Packard’s, Woolworth’s and that perfume laden place, Arnold Constables. It was what my mother called “a lady’s store”. The whole place reeked of perfume and I can remember smelling like Chanel No. 5 the rest of the day, or possibly until the next day when I changed my clothes. One nice thing about going to school was that I missed out on these daytime excursions in the world of women’s shopping.

As a twelve year old, Arnold Constables re-emerged once in my life as the location of a special appearance by Cousin Brucie aka Bruce Morrow, the disc jockey. I remember the place was full of kids, and most of them did not smell like perfume. This one girl I didn’t know started talking to me about music. I held my own, showing off my knowledge of the Animals and the Stones. My first exposure to the faster set that traveled at will to see music celebrities.

Bruce Morrow showed up. There was lots of screaming. I don’t remember what he talked about. Presumably it was to promote his radio show on WABC and perhaps a few products.

Today long gone, Arnold Constables in Hackensack is now a campus of Bergen Community College. Bruce Morrow does oldies shows for public television “pitch week”.

Editor’s note:  This post is mentioned in the Hackensack Community Message Board. Interesting site for Bergen County history buffs.

"Top of the hill" here... this is so weird, my grandmother used to work at Arnold Constables as a cook. I don't remember if it was a restaurant or an employee cafeteria. It was upstairs and sometimes dad would take me there to visit with her after we had seen a movie at the Fox. I was just telling me kids last night about how I got my picture in the paper for being in a fashion show at AC when I was about 8. I was featured wearing a pair of knickers. For participating we each got some sort of store credit. I wanted my mom to buy me knickers. She wouldn't. I'm so glad now.... my kids ask "what are knickers?" :-)

But it's always wise to check in with a doctor before you start using a supplement regularly. The second option is to use headphones as you probably did at the gym in the past. This can be achieved by adding more weight, increasing the number of repetitions, or by adding on additional sets.

Going back to the original comments regarding smelling like perfume after being in the Arnold Constable stores. I worked in the display dept. of the Hempstead store in the mid/late 60's. We had 3 vestibules(entrances) and each one had a perfume mister mounted up high above the windows. Companies would send us gallons of perfume and it was part of my job to keep the misters full. Sometimes the girl that I worked with would throw a small cup of the stuff on me and I would have to take the bus home in the cold weather smelling of the latest scent. Very embarrassing!! We also received perfume bottles filled with an antifreeze solution to place in the windows. The window areas were not heated and we couldn't risk a freeze situation. I thought that they would have alcohol in them to resist freezing. My job also included rebuilding the many mannequins that would get damaged. Sort of like a mechanical plastic surgeon. Great store and lots of nice memories. Fred
