A Norfolk, Virginia based chain of shoe stores that was once a leading East Coast retailer. Founded in 1885, it was known for live monkeys in some of the retail locations [1]. One of the larger freestanding suburban stores was at Ward's Corner in Norfolk [2]. The family sold the company in 1982. The company is now defunct, having filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1992 [3] and closing for good in 1998.
