In 1907, members of the Marcus family had a chance to invest in a new company called Coca-Cola. They passed, and put their money into a new high-end clothing store in Dallas, Texas. Seven years after it opened, a fire wiped out everything – the building and the stock. They rebuilt and thrived. Eventually, the editor of Vogue Magazine would call Neiman Marcus “the perfect store for women” and its name would be synonymous with wealth and luxury (the store expanded far beyond clothing, offering such delights as His and Hers Mini Submarines and $1 million jewel-encrusted tigers). Today, the company also owns Bergdorf Goodman. www.neimanmarcus.com
