Krauss:  New Orleans’ Value Store

Coming September 2017

by Edward Branley

A veritable trade palace
For almost a hundred years, generations of New Orleans shoppers flocked to Krauss. The Canal Street store was hailed for its vast merchandise selection and quality customer service. In its early days it sold lace and fabric to the ladies of the notorious red light district, Storyville. The store’s renowned lunch counter, “Eddie’s at Krauss,” served Eddie Baquet’s authentic New Orleans cuisine to customers and celebrities such as Julia Child. Though the beloved store finally closed its doors in 1997, Krauss is still fondly remembered as a retail haven. With vintage photographs, interviews with store insiders and a wealth of research, historian Edward J. Branley brings the story of New Orleans’ Creole department store back to life.
