Press Release (ePRNews.com) - DENVER - May 24, 2017 - Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Denver Dry Goods: Where Colorado Shopped with Confidence
Local author Mark Barnhouse will be available to sign copies of book
Over the course of eleven decades, The Denver Dry Goods and its predecessor, McNamara Dry Goods, proudly served Coloradoans, who knew they could “shop with confidence” for the best quality at the fairest prices. Much more than the goods it sold, the store was a major institution that touched the lives of nearly every Denverite. Comforting culinary traditions like Chicken à la King in the vast fifth-floor tearoom and breakfast with Santa delighted locals. Festive chandeliers adorned the four-hundred-foot-long main aisle during the holidays, and longtime salesclerks knew customers by name. Devoted patrons dearly missed all that charm after the doors closed in 1987. Mark Barnhouse explores the fascinating history and cherished memories of Denver’s most beloved department store.
Highlights from the book include:
· This is the first-ever book-length history of the store, often simply referred to as The Denver.
· There’s an entire chapter on the Tea Room, The largest restaurant from 1924—1987, lavishly illustrated, with six recipes of classic Tea Room dishes, including its signature dish, Chicken a la King.
· The book also covers a department that most American department stores never had: a complete shop to serve the needs of the professional stockman and cowboy.
