Eileen Hallet Stone - Auerbach's: The Store that Performs What It Promises
Wed, Dec 12
Join us Wednesday, December 12, at 6:30 PM, as we welcome Eileen Hallet Stone to the store for a presentation and signing of Auerbach's: The Store that Performs What It Promises!After an arduous journey to Utah’s Mormon frontier, three Jewish immigrant brothers built a flagship institution that lasted more than a century in downtown Salt Lake City. The F. Auerbach & Bros. story is one of personal challenges, Prussian folktales, perilous sea voyages, Wild West tenacity and those elegant and sophisticated fashions found on the second floor. Built along railroad tracks and dressing boomtown “Ladies of Aristocracy” in finery, Auerbach’s tent stores evolved into one of the finest retailers in state history, providing something for everyone under one roof. Award-winning author and former Salt Lake Tribune columnist Eileen Hallet Stone brings to life the magical moments of the shopping dynasty that lasted until 1979.
