ST. LOUIS ( – Strong winds brought back a piece of the past Wednesday morning.

Venture Sign

Annis Denay took a photo of an Old Venture sign that was spotted at the corner of West Florissant and Interstate 270 as heavy winds swept through the area. The Venture sign had been covered up but the cover blew away during the High Wind Warning.

Venture was a chain of retail stores that entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January 1998. Months after filing for bankruptcy, the chain closed.
