Montaldo’s, a lady’s specialty shop, was started in 1919 by two sisters, Lillian and Nelle Montaldo. It was a pioneer in the field of ladies’ ready-to-wear and was known for their high quality and personal service. Branches were found in Richmond, Virginia, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Raleigh and Greensboro, North Carolina, Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio, Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado, St. Louis, Missouri and Bartlesville, Oklahoma, etc. In 1995, Montaldo’s declared bankruptcy and went out of business.
“Whatever is exceptional in quality and design must be offered to Montaldo’s customers.” Lillian Montaldo
