I really bemoan the old NRM (National Record Mart) loss just a few years back, they got squeezed out of the market by the changing dynamics of the recording industry (online retailers, the WalMartization and BestBuyization of America and the labels decision to only support two or three "mall retailers" and effectively shut out the #4 and #5 players like the rapidly expanding NRM, didn't they have locations in 40 states or so by the time they fell?).

Kaufman's although the brand was HQed here it was owned by May since the 40s I think so in a way it would NEVER expand it was basically frozen into its region since it was the "regional" representative of May's branches. Left on its own Kaufmann's was at the time of take over every bit as potent as Sears was or Bloomies etc. and could have grown like them through the 50s 60s and beyond. I still liked having the namesake around the Burgh and E. Ohio and W.V. but now even that looks like it won't happen anymore.

I don't know about the Kaufmann's brand playing too well outside of the immediate Pgh area though. Keep in mind that other cities also had independent home-town department stores that were as potent if not more so than Kaufmann's (e.g., Nordstrom in Seattle, Sears in Chicago, and Gimbel's in Philadelphia). If anything, the May take-over caused the expansion of Kaufmann's since May investment grew the Kaufman's name and future May acquisitions in other markets merged chains into Kaufman's. Also May allowed the Kaufmann's name to expand itno the Cleveland area by merging its May Co. stores into Kaufmann's.

Perhaps one chain to add to the list, howeve, is Joseph Horne & Co. True, they were never as big as Kaufmann's but they were a true independent Pgh-based chain which expanded into the Cleveland market (before pulling back).

I think BY FAR, the most potentent Pgh-retailer (if it can be called that) is PNC which has a presence coast to coast.

Don't forget Eat n' Park. They have locations in some surrounding states. So does Bruester's Ice Cream I think.

Then there's Wholey's and Dellalo's. They may not operate stores outside the Pgh-area but they sell their products nation wide.

That's a good point. Were it not for May Company, there's a good chance Kaufmann's could have been confined to Western Pennsylvania.

For those in the Philadelphia or Central PA regions feel free to document your regions assetts. I am trying to keep the format pretty similar but we can post it as a pin at the top of the forum ;)

Urban, thats right, I saw some Dellallo (I think they were spagetti sauce or tomato sauce) jars for sale next to Ragu and others in Florida of all places.

Though I wouldn't classify them as retail (they are more like Heinz or DelMonte or Clark Bars in that they sell to the retailers) I am really rooting for them to succeed nationally!
