In 1969, the company
was purchased by the U.S. Shoe Corporation, and by 1980 it became one of
the country's most successful specialty retailers. During the 1980's, in
response to the growing demand for an increased range of sizes, the Women's
Specialty Retailing Group was formed. Under that umbrella, the company purchased
Petite Sophisticate and created August Max Woman, expanding its market to
include special sizes. In
May of 1995, Luxottica Group S.p.A., world leader in the design, manufacture
and marketing of high quality eyewear, acquired the U.S. Shoe Corporation,
which included the Women's Specialty Retailing Group and LensCrafters, the
world's largest optical retailer. In October 1995, the Women's Specialty
Retailing Group was transformed into a separate entity called Casual Corner

that, soon after its launch in 1953, it became widely known as the 'magical
fibre'! The Damart brand continued to cultivate the feeling of well being
with Thermolactyl for over 50 years and this unique fibre remains unsurpassed
today in terms of its ability to provide the ultimate in lightweight insulation

Eskimo Joe's was the brainchild of Steve File, a pal of Stan Clark since
the two were in fifth grade. One fateful Sunday afternoon in May, 1975,
Steve proclaimed, "Hey, I'm gonna open a bar!" Stan said, "I
know where there's a two-story building for rent. I'll go in partners with
you!" Within minutes, these two wild and crazy guys had agreed to rent
the building at 501 W. Elm. Steve came up with the name Eskimo Joe's,
and Bill Thompson, a freshman commercial art student, drew the famous logo
with a magic marker. "I loved it the second I saw it!" Stan says.
And so, Eskimo Joe and Buffy were born. Now they sell shirts, hats etc.
