Here here! Great store, overshadowed by the big department stores and by Andrisen Morton, the “big” specialty store there. But Lawrence Covell does it the best. One of the better stores in the country, in fact.Thanks for giving them the recognition they deserve.

Three cheers to you Sarto, for bringing to mind the art of buying for a customer, not just following the big boys into the sleepy pursuit of profits.
Funny how the Saks example is indictative of what Clayton Christensen referred to in his book “The Innovators Dilemma” -that large companies do not know how to stay fresh, given the duality of trying to appease shareholders more than customers.
This is why Lawrence and Cathy are truly artists and proof that there is always room to contest the big boys space in the market. This is a great industry!
Happy Anniversary to Lawrence Covell!

I think Lawrence Covell is a stuffy store with snooty salespeople and the designers aren’t that great either.
On a sad note, I just received the mailer announcing that they are closing. Too bad.

42 Years and we are still going strong!
Scott, thank you for the never ending kind words. I would like to ask, that if possible, for you to remove the post regarding Lawrence Covell closing. We have never sent out such a mailer meaning the entire story is a fabrication.
Thank you again Scott, hope to speak soon.
