A Bit of Arcade History
While most Clevelanders know about "The Arcade," downtown Cleveland has two more arcades, the Colonial Arcade built in 1898 and the Euclid Arcade built in 1911. The two arcades are situated in the heart of downtown Cleveland and lie parallel to each other between East 4th and East 6th Streets, bound by Euclid and Prospect Avenues at each end.
The Colonial Arcade and the Euclid Arcade were connected in the middle by a food court in 2000.
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.
These historic shopping arcades served as vibrant indoor streetscapes filled with shops and activity, a welcomed escape from the brisk cold weather that accompanies our Cleveland winters. (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 actual jewelry store is still there, right across the way from our store. When I went in to tell the owner my story--one of the employees replied, "Welcome home!"
