October 19 in San Antonio history...

1940

1949
Bexar County’s brand new coliseum was “open for business” with the two-day performance of the Ringling Brothers – Barnum & Bailey Circus.

1978
The first six K-mart stores in San Antonio, located in buildings formerly occupied by Globe stores, open on the same day.  H. E. Wilcox, western regional vice-president, says, “It’s highly unusual for a chain to open six stores in one day, as we did…  Chicago opened five K-mart stores in one day and that’s as close as we’ve come.”
