Did anyone remember this department store? I did I was really young did they sell any casablancas there? They did have a lot of ge vent fans that I liked I'm not sure if they sold hunter or not. And they were a couple of other brands of fans they sold, too.
Super Mario and Real Ghostbuster fan
I have neither been there nor done that. It does not suck to be you. Stupid dog, Shut Up!
we used to have a Handy Andy in the Great Northern Shopping Center in North Olmsted, Ohio but then it changed to Home Depot in the mid 90's. Handy Andy and Builders Square always had the best selection of fans ever. I remembered seeing quite a few stencil blade fans, spinners, SMC fans, and plenty of Hunters and other old brands mentioned in this forum including Moss.
i remember a hardware store called elkon's (they didn't sell any ceiling fans) but they have some vintage fans there like: 1 52" emerson (plastic emerson/NOT friction drive) 1 52" (i think plastic blades) emerson "blender" ceiling fan(all brown) 1 52" hunter original(2 speed) with regular arms(all white) and few more fans,but don't remember them others. but sadly elkons went out of buisness in early 90s and the vintage fans are gone.
We had a Handy Dan, which may or may not be related (I know that one of the stores in that chain was a "Handy City".) They had a GIANT fan display, but I think it was mostly SMC. I only got to go in there once so I'm not exactly sure what they had, but I specifically remember SMC Park Avenues being sold there.

Handy Andy was owned and started by Ronald Rashkow ... Forrest City was, if I remember right, owned by Shottenstein's of Columbus Ohio - they also started odd lots .. Handy Andy was bought out by Scotty's Lumber (a FL based chain) and then the name disappeared.... Ronnie was very good friends with David Moss .. in fact Ronnie used to set David up in raquette ball games to get extra advertising dollars - despite our being really po'd at David over this, as David sucked at raquette ball !
