Palais Royal - Southern quality and heritage
Isadore Erlich opened the first Palais Royal store in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1921. The chain continued to expand across the southern United States, including the states of Texas and Louisiana, and focused on the operation of large stores in metropolitan markets. 1988, the Palais Royal chain merged with another department store chain, Bealls, to form Specialtiy Retailers Inc., a Houston-based company now known as Stage Stores Inc. Today, under the Stage Stores umbrella, customers across the United States can find quality, brand name apparel with good value from over 800 locations across 40 states. The Southern heritage and customer service of the original Palais Royal store continues into the future, with each store committed to delivering a friendly feel when consumers shop for the best in family clothing and accessories.
