Welcome! I’m glad you’re here, my name is Mike and Houston Historic Retail is a personal project of mine. No other person, company, or other entity is sponsoring this website. This website is a labor of love and as such most of the information on this website is of my own personal research. However, some outside sources are used and I try to notate them all.

The website is divided into two separate sections. The content on the home page is made up of blog posts, which are related in some way. The pages accessed by the menu are about on chains that have either left, or dwindled in the Houston area.

Any logos, images, or other graphic shown on this website is property of its original owner. As such they may be removed at the owner’s request using the contact information below.


If you want to get in touch with me you can email me. If you’d rather not divulge your email you can use the Contact Me page, or leave a comment on any page or post. I always like to hear from visitors, and I’m open to the idea of sharing content from guest writers. If you have something you’re trying to research, I have a good amount of resources to share. Also, if you have something for me to research I can look into it!
