For anyone who grew up shopping in Jacobson's this is a great trip down memory lane. It also tells the story of an entrepreneur and the department store chain he built that even as it grew retained it's individual character and superb customer service.

Having worked at Jacobson's for many years and having been a loyal customer, I enjoyed this book. It was great to be reminded of many details I'd forgotten over the years!

And we do miss it so... Name your Jake's location and Bruce Kopytek has devoted a part of his book to it! A lovely homage to great days in Jackson's past, sadly now distant memories.
