Description:
This name badge would be worn by employees at Steketee's to help customers identify the staff. This appears to have been unused or had the name removed. This item is significant for its historical association with a downtown Grand Rapids department store. The history of some of Grand Rapids' long-time retailers still resonates today because of the active role these businesses and their owners played in contributing to the development of the city, its economy, arts, and culture.
