A Bit Of Arcade History:
While most Clevelanders know about "The Arcade," downtown Cleveland has two more arcades that lie parallel to each other, the Colonial Arcade built in 1898 and the Euclid Arcade built in 1911.
The two arcades run between Euclid and Prospect Avenues just east of 4th Street. They are now both part of the 5th Street Arcades and in the year 2000 they were connected in the middle by a food court.
It is difficult to imagine today just how busy these arcades were in the decades after they first opened. This was an era before suburban malls and shopping centers when everyone came to Downtown Cleveland to shop. (clevelandhistorical.org)

A Cute Story:
When I (Ida) was a little girl, my father managed a Jewelry store in the Colonial Arcade. I would sit on a chair, wait for customers to come, shop and go, and then wipe their fingerprints off the glass counters. That was over 50 years ago!
The Jewelry store is still there, actually right across the way from the Bright Green Gift Store. When I went in to tell the owner my story--one of the employees replied, "Welcome home!"
