Nice list. FYI, Barkers should be under discount stores. They were done by 1982, not 1977. Purchased by Kings Dept Stores in 1980...

I got one "store" to add, Brothers even though the chain was never its own store (like it should have been in addition to it being co-branded with Justice), but the Justice stores that were listed as "Justice & Brothers" had the boys section (Brothers) removed in the summer of 2015.

Speaking of Justice, Limited Too a former division of The Limited had their stores converted to Justice in 2008.

Also we need to add clothing stores to the list!
