    See ... I told you. : )

    I didn't see your first question so I'll answer here. I've never heard of Alden's mailorder house. (My husband's middle name is Alden and he's supposidly related to someone who came on the Mayflower) 


    My grandmother ordered stuff from the Jewel Tea man. I wonder if anyone will come up with an answer or comment.


    Keep writing stuff. Eventually you'll get answers on one thing ... or another. Glad to meet you.

    THANKS! FOR CHATTING WITH ME . THIS IS NEW TO ME. GLAD TO CHAT WITH YOU.

    Thanks for dropping in. Come back anytime.

    Aldens was established in 1889 under the name Chicago Mail Order and Millinery Company and was incorporated in Illinois on December 15, 1902. In 1906 the name of the business changed to Chicago Mail Order Company.


    In the mid-1930s Aldens expanded its operations through acquisitions. It acquired the goodwill and mailing lists of M.W. Savage Company of Minneapolis in April 1935, Hamilton Garment of New York in May 1936, and D.T. Bohon of Kentucky in June 1936.


    In 1936 Aldens began selling goods to its mail-order customers on a monthly payment plan. Besides its principal activity as a mail-order business, Aldens established offices for placing orders and began operating retail stores on an experimental basis. In 1938 sales totaled $24 million. The company initially specialized in the sale of apparel and accessories for women and men, especially fashion merchandise. Soon the company added curtains, sheets, pillowcases, tablecloths, fabrics, and book and toys. In 1938 these lines of goods were expanded to include home furnishings and house wares.


    By 1943 Aldens had a main plant with 690,000 square feet of floor space in Chicago. The company extended its operations into the retail department store field in 1944 and over the next fifteen years opened sixteen stores, primarily in the Midwest. After World War II, apparel merchandise grew to represent a substantial portion of Alden's sales.
