Thanks SuzyW for posting that link!  It's very interesting to see some of those Big Business names still alive and well in the many named stores across the country!  Wonder if they're still family owned, I believe Ballantynes is, but don't know about Hallensteins or any others!

I wondered that myself.  I am sure they are all related somewhere along the line.
