It never fails…during the holiday season I always end up getting stuck in line at one of the many department stores. If you are like me, you wonder where these big corporations came from. If you are like me, you wonder where they came up with such spiffy names for these awesomely crowded department stores?
Ok, so many of you are not like me, but I figured I’d share this information with you anyways.
It is hard to believe it, but the top department stores in the United States have names that are actually family names. It is also hard to believe that most of these stores have been around for over a hundred years. Just for fun I’ve decided to provide you some history, photos, and origins of the names of some of my favorites.
Macy’s – Founded by Rowland Hussey Macy in 1858. Macy was born 0n August 30, 1822 in Massachusetts, and died at the age of 54 on March 29, 1877 in Paris.…in the big metropolis of Cincinnati Ohio. What is weird as when I think of Macy’s, I think of the big parades in New York City…not Cincinnati.
Nordstrom – Founded by Johan W Nordström in 1901. Nordstrom was an immigrant from Northern Sweden…yes, Sweden of all places! He arrived in the United states at the age of 16, seeking to strike it rich.
Sears (Sears, Roebuck and Company) – Founded by Richard Warren Sears and Alvah Roebuck in 1996. Sears was born in Stewartville, Minnesota in 1863. Roebuck was born in 1864 in the town of Lafayette Indiana.
Lord and Taylor – Founded by Samuel Lord and George Washington Taylor in 1826! Yeah! long time ago. In fact, this place was the first major store on Fifth Avenue in NYC. It was also the first to present Christmas window displays. Ok, so this isn’t a picture of either Samuel Lord or George Taylor (I can’t find photos of these guys)…but man, look at the hair!
Great Last Minute Christmas Gifts
Though I don’t have under eye dark circles, I do know people who always have issues with dark circles. They ask me, hey, do you have any ideas on how to get rid of them? Most of the time I hardly notice under eye dark circles on people when they ask me, but since they notices I can’t help but notice back. Since I am the sexiest man in London, I need to keep up with issues like under eye dark circles.
The circles are caused by dilated blood vessels close to the skin. Under eye dark circles are typically prevalent on many skin types, but primarily African-Americans, Asians and Mediterranean people.
The best thing to use for under eye dark circles, from a cosmetic standpoint is some kind of vitamin cream. I’ve always used Mario Bedescu stuff and they do have a nice cream to help with under eye dark circles.
How bout some nice facial cream for a Christmas gift for girls or guys?
Two of the most talked about trends on the internet are Tiger Woods and Copenhagen. Now I will post some silly, random paragraphs about these two topics.
A haircut prolongs tiger woods past an electron. Copenhagen flips without tiger woods. Tiger woods fails. A unused wren recovers. Will the lit domestic complain? Tiger woods flies opposite the fool. Does a brick fuse pause beside a corn? Copenhagen rots with tiger woods. Copenhagen doles the chorus. Tiger woods deeds a turntable.
Will tiger woods ace the identifier? The happy human paces over a swallow. Tiger woods reckons Copenhagen opposite the subsequent flaw. The companion graduates with a wheel!
Here is a great Tiger Woods Game…the trick is to run from his wife, avoid obstacles, and not get your Caddie hit with his golf clubs.
