This book will primari...

This book will primarily be of interest to people from St. Louis, who remember the days of the grand, locally owned department stores, of which Famous-Barr was the biggest. The book chronicles the history of the story, its rise to prominence, its glory days of special promotions, brilliant displays and customer service, and then its demise in the era of retailing consolidation in the first years of the 21st Century. The grand, locally owned department stores are almost all gone, but here's this book for those who are nostalgic. And it includes the recipe for Famous' wonderful French onion soup.
