Miller & Rhoad’s Hey Day Ad 1, originally uploaded by Look In The Tunk.

I haven’t been able to see this ad in a few years, but I think the ad said that M&R had its own walk in fur storage fridge.

Going out of business fur sale ad a few years later


Ah, here is a close up on the ad:

Fur Experts Hired Off The Street

  1. M&R had a central fur vault in Richmond – so did Thalhimers for that matter. If you were in Richmond, you could take your fur to the fur department downtown, or, as the ad says, to the general office at any store. You rang them up when fur season came back around and they’d deliver the fur to the store of your choice for pickup.
