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.
