Today's Frazz

Frazz from 31 May 2011

Note the reference to two department stores that no longer exist: J.L.Hudsons and Jacobsons.

Hudson's was originally out of Detroit, got bought by Daytons, who got bought by Marshall Fields, who got bought by Macy's.

Jacobson's had a big stores in East Lansing, East Grand Rapids, and other parts of the Mid West. After bankruptcy, someone bought the name and recreated a store in Winter Park FL.

Ganto's was another Michigan based woman's clothing store that has since gone out of business.
