Hutzler's Experience: How a Small Dry Goods Store Became a Maryland Institution
Hutzlers department store was a Maryland icon for more than a century. The family-run business grew to 10 stores across Maryland, including its downtown flagship store known as the Palace. The Maryland Historical Society is bringing Hutzlers back to life in a new exhibition, “The Hutzlers Experience: How a Small Dry Goods Store Became a Maryland Institution.” The exhibition recalls what was an all-day experience for customers when they visited Hutzlers, displaying products, ephemera, employee uniforms and handbooks, drawings, video from behind-the-scenes at Hutzlers, and items from the iconic Towson Tea Room. A highlight of the exhibition is a reimagined window display, like the Hutzlers on Baltimore’s Howard Street, which will change with the seasons. “The Hutzlers Experience” will be on view from December 11, 2019, through December 31, 2020.
