Farewell Favorites: FAO Schwartz
During the week of Christmas 2002, the King Of Prussia, Pennsylvania based parent company of FAO Schwartz announced it would close 70 under performing stores by March, 2003. By the time the holiday came it was confirmed that the company's Union Square store, in the former Joseph Magnin location at 48 Stockton Street at O'Farrell since 1989, would be among the doomed toy stores. The original location of the thirty-two year fixture in Union Square was 180 Post Street, 1969-1989.
