This week I met with the new owners of The Andover Shop. First off, they can report that Charlie is hanging in there at the ripe age of 93. The team that took over has only modest upgrading plans, which mostly include a new website and perhaps some store events. Certainly no collaborations with Urban Outfitters. Note they’ve also come on board as a sponsor, so please click their banner in the right-side ad tower and give a call if you don’t see what you need on the site. The revamped website should be up in the fall.
In the meantime, here are some images from the 1942 yearbook of the Phillips Andover Academy. You’ll note an advertisement that says “the Andover shop,” but it seems to be referring to the Andover location of Langrock, as the actual Andover Shop was not founded until 1947.
Thanks to frequent comment-leaver SE for the head’s up on the images. — CC
