Product Description

"Finding Thalhimers" chronicles more than 150 years of the Thalhimers’ store and four generations of family leadership, tracing the company’s growth from a modest dry goods shop in Richmond, Virginia, to a 26-store chain across Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Thalhimers, renowned for excellent customer service, quality goods, and business integrity, became a community center as much as a store. It was a “corporate citizen” before the term even existed. Thalhimers witnessed history from the great conflagration of the Civil War to the sit-ins of the Civil Rights era, and from the rise of ready-to-wear to the arrival of the big-box giants.
