The Caldor Rainbow

Damned if I know how I stumbled across it, but Nicholas DiMaio's blog The Caldor Rainbow: Tracking The Retail Rainbows of Everyday Discount Stores is fascinating reading.

I've been in CT since 1983 (uhm, this would be before Mr. Demaio was born, I think) and have lived in Bristol, Southington, Danbury, Waterbury, and Hartford. So I have seen a lot of the retail establishments that he writes about when they were alive - and have seen them come and go.

Fascinating read!
