In case you were looking at page A-3, but not page A-13, Kaufmann’s reminded readers to scour The News for money-saving coupons 15 years ago this week.
A name emblazoned on the walls of area shopping malls for 16 years, Kaufmann’s, originally of Pittsburgh, entered the Western New York retail landscape when the owners of the Sibley’s chain combined all of their stores into their Kaufmann’s brand in 1990. Kaufmann’s was in turn bought out by Macy’s in 2006.
The Buffalo-area Sibley’s stores had been Hengerer’s stores until 1981, when all the Western New York stores owned by ADG were merged under the Rochester-based Sibley’s name.
