Gus Mayer, 1900 to 1975
Founded in 1900; the original Gus Mayer department store was located on Canal Street in downtown New Orleans. The first Birmingham location opened in 1922 in the Retail Block on 5th Avenue North. Later the store was moved to Highland Avenue, now home to Bottega Restaurant and Cafe. In 1975, just two short years after Brookwood Mall opened Gus Mayer made their move. In the same year, the Pizitz Management group purchased Gus Mayer later adding the Nashville location.
