I trace my roots back to 1902, when a “Golden Rule” store was opened in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Some 12 years later, I launched the private-label Marathon Hats brand, followed later by Gaymode hosiery, Silver Moon lingerie, Big Mac work clothes and Towncraft menswear. I went public a week before the stock market crash in 1929. In 1963 I launched my first catalog. Today I’m a major apparel and home furnishings retailer, with about 875 stores nationwide. I have more than 2,500 suppliers, employ more than 100,000 people and rake in more than $12 billion annually. Who am I?
Think you know the answer? We’ll announce it in next week’s edition.
