Before the Culture Palace opening, trade pavilions were set up in the most populous place of that time.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Trade pavilions were placed on Komsomolskaya square “to bring the goods closer to the buyers” as a slogan in the summer of 1960 said.

These were light, open pavilions. There were signs above each: Fabrics, Knitwear, Dishes, Shoes and so on. In one pavilion, parents bought school uniforms for their children, and in the other, new clothes for themselves.

Each pavilion was like a small specialty store. The trade was very lively. Here is how the city newspaper wrote about it:

“Deputy head of the retail trade department, comrade Puzikov, said that the following stores took part in the organization of the autumn bazaar: Department Store (that was the name of the future Talnah store), Detsky Mir, Nos. 19 and 42 and the youngest collective of Children’s World (director I.F. Suchkov)”.

The first day of the autumn bazaar gave good results: the revenue for only one day was equal to the two-day income of the Department Store. The autumn market lasted several weeks.

Later, the authorities wanted to rename Komsomolskaya square. They considered the idea of ​​naming it after one of the Norilsk combine directors Boris Kolesnikov.

They also wanted to name the Culture Palace after Kolesnikov. The idea was widely reported in the city media, but then died down. Both the square and the palace remained with their old names.

In the History Spot photo project previous publication, we told that the first market in Norilsk appeared in the early 1940s, and the combine’s Culture Palace was built for ten years.
