About Book

"Sol Price: Retail Revolutionary and Social Innovator, recounts the extraordinary life of a man who profoundly impacted the shopping habits of consumers in the United States and throughout much of the world. Written by Sol's son Robert Price, this narrative--part biography and part memoir--provides a unique insight into his father's life... As a retail revolutionary, Sol's creative brilliance changed the way we shop, first with FedMart in 1954, the retail format copied by Walmart, Kmart, and Target in 1962, and then, with the Price Club, the warehouse club format adopted by Costco and Sam's Club in 1983. Self-service shopping in large florescent-lit buildings has become part of the American culture and is now the predominant mode of shopping thought most of the world" --Dust jacket.
