Whatever Happened to Weinstock's?
SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on October 10, 2012

California historian Annette Kassis, whose book Weinstock's: Sacramento's Finest Department Store, answers questions about the fate of the once popular store, shares some of those insights in this interview. In this second of three brief videos, she gives an overview of the store's 120 year history that spanned from the late 1800s through the mid 1990s. The store used other names before taking on the identity of Weinstock's in the 1960s.

In Sacramento it started on 4th and K then moved to 12th and K, which is now where Bank of America is located. The cover photo on Annette's book is at the 12th and K location. Other Weinstock's store could be found at Country Club Plaza, Arden Fair and Sunrise Mall. Ultimately the company was devastated by the late eighties recession and was unable to recover so it went bankrupt and was absorbed by Macy's owner Federated.
