Richman Brothers was established in 1877 in Portsmouth, Ohio. Self-described as “The World’s Greatest Clothing Factory,” by 1928 the company had 31 menswear stores in 30 cities. They also sold their suits and tuxedos by mail. Woolworth’s bought the Richman Brothers company in 1969 and closed its 260 stores in 1992 after an unsuccessful attempt to sell the subsidiary.
