All this discussion about working at the Big E made me recall my mother telling me that her very first job was wrapping gifts there during the Christmas season when she was 16 and a senior at Girls High School. This would have been 1941. They trained her well; she was always a whiz a gift wrapping. When she was married in 1949 she bought her wedding dress there, which I now possess.
