Schuster's and Gimbels:: Milwaukee's Beloved Department Stores (Landmarks)

Paul Geenen Author

Image Not Available

For well over a century, Milwaukee shoppers have had Gimbels or Schuster's on the brain. Even if they didn't crave sewing notions or prize-winning apple pies, they were watching holiday parades wind by, tuning in for Billie the Brownie's radio updates or losing themselves in front of one of the fabulous window displays. Not only were they magical places to shop but also wonderful places to work, creating the kind of community where a kid might come in to work the Christmas rush and stay for twenty-five years. Enjoy this loving trip through the history of these beloved stores, from their arrival in Milwaukee in the 1880s through the 1962 merger and beyond.

About the Author:

Paul Geenen is a retired entrepreneur, an author and a grandfather of eight. He wrote Milwaukee's Bronzeville: 1900-1950, a history of African Americans in Milwaukee that was published by Arcadia Publishing in 2006. Geenen graduated from the University of Wisconsin and worked for Dayton's in Minneapolis, Circuit City in Richmond, Virginia, Gold Triangle in Miami, Florida, and Gimbels in Milwaukee. He joined Gimbels in 1976 as a buyer and was divisional merchandise manager of the Marketplace when he left in 1983. For the next seven years, he worked in sales, first at Computers Unlimited in Milwaukee and then Innovative Computer Products in Indianapolis. He and his partner started Galaxy Data, Inc. in 1990, and the company was included in the Inc 500 list of fastest-growing companies in 1995. Galaxy Data specialized in high-speed backbones and Internet security, servicing large companies in the Wisconsin and Chicago market. He sold his share of Galaxy Data to his partner in 1999 and retired.

He spends a lot of time with his grandchildren and volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters by mentoring an active eight-year-old boy. Geenen plays tennis and racquetball and sails.
