Landmark New York Store

To Our Customers

After 96 years, we will not be renewing the lease for our iconic midtown Manhattan store. Our store has been an institution on East 57th street for generations, patronized by world leaders, celebrities, captains of industry, tourists, and local New Yorkers.

The reasons why so many have visited our store since it first opened in the Bowery in 1848 – problem-solving items of exceptional quality, superior customer service, and a lifetime guarantee — are qualities our customers will continue to enjoy shopping via our catalog or online at

As we enter our 175th year, we will continue to offer The Best, The Only, and The Unexpected to our loyal customers in New York and across the country. Thank you for your continued business.
