It all began in February 1974 when my mother, MaryAnn Rosen, a dedicated volunteer as an entertainer at local nursing homes, found that the residents greatly missed shopping for their own clothing. She had a vision – why not bring a department store directly to them?
Starting out at my father’s clothing store, “Rosen’s” (which was in business for over 75 years) “The Department Store on Wheels” was born. With Shoppers Service growing over the years, my father joined the business. Both he and my mother took great pride in being able to offer fashionable merchandise to over 300 nursing homes throughout New York State. My mother also continued to volunteer as a vocalist, together with her backup band. The residents not only looked forward to the “Store Visit” shopping day, but also for those special occasions when MaryAnn would visit their facility and provide entertainment for them. Sadly we lost MaryAnn in 2011 and my father Robert, in 2014 but I know that they would both be proud of the fact that MaryAnn’s initial vision carries on.
