Hutzler's: Where Baltimore Shopsby Michael J. Lisicky
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
For 132 years, Hutzler Brother's Company was a beloved part of the Baltimore retail and cultural scene. Charm City natives still recall with nostalgia the distinctive Art Deco design of the Downtown Store, the glitter of the fashion shows, the unforgettable Christmas celebrations and the chocolate chiffon pie served in the store's Colonial Restaurant. Local author Michael J. Lisicky pays tribute to Hutzler's as he chronicles the rise of the family-run department store, its growth into Towson and other Maryland cities and its eventual and much lamented passing. Interviews with John Waters, former Hutzlerites and statesmen provide a glimpse into the role that Hutzler's played in the lives of so many Baltimoreans. With his vivid prose and some classic Hutzler's recipes, Lisicky brings to life this lost Baltimore institution.

I, as many other teenagers worked at Hutzlers during our high school years. What a wonderful place to work for a budding fashionista! I was introduced to all the stores downtown by my mother and the impression she left me with, the best always was at Hutzlers. In all the stores it was time of gentlity and civility. Service to the customer was something our children will never know. This book brings back all these memories when Howard Street was our Fifth Avenue.
