Nospamtodd 01:09, 6 May 2007 (UTC)I don't think that there was an Emporium location at Valley Fair. The Emporium was next door to Valley Fair, in its own freestanding shopping center. I don't think that the Emporium's shopping center had anything to do with Valley Fair.

Emporium Capwell - The Times They Are A Changin'[edit]

I am an Australian who lived in San Jose in the very early Eighties and have long since returned home to the Land Down-under - but I then worked for The Emporium as it was then known and can't believe what's happened. What a shame! Another Bay Area icon bites the big one. I enjoyed working there very much as a young man and have fond memories of several of the stores I was assigned to in the Bay Area. My last visit to my old stomping ground was in 1993 on a visit to the Almaden store I had worked at and can only say how shocked I was at reading the more recent article in Wikipedia. What a wonderful forum!!!

The Emporium, San FranciscoThe Emporium (store chain) – Misleading as this is not a neighborhood like Sunset District, San Francisco. It should not get comma treatment unless it is the official and common name. Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 03:36, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

  • Comment. But also note there is an Emporium (department store chain), which was a different chain, so the disambiguator needs to be more specific than just "store chain". The additional definite article just isn't specific enough to discriminate between the two (particularly since I suspect the other one was often known as the Emporium too). -- Necrothesp (talk) 11:31, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
If that is case what would Emporium (department store chain) be moved to? Suggestions? Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 18:31, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
