I vaguely remember this catalog showroom retailer called The Present Company. It went out of business probably around 1995. There seems to be nothing on Wikipedia. Does anyone remember this chain. It may have been a Northeast only chain.

Their time has come and gone. There used to be McDades and another one around Chicago as well as Service Merchandise. I know at one they had stuff at great prices but when you went in and ordered they would always be out. You could be waiting for hours before finding that out. That's one thing that killed it.
