  1. I remember Anita Shops was the first job my brother Dan and I held. I worked once or twice a year helping with counting inventory, my brother with stockroom duties. Clothes were nicely stylish with very reasonable prices. I never found out why the one we worked at (Atlantic Square; in Monterey Park, CA) closed down. And this is the only reference to Anita Shops I could find online.

    1. I was employed at Anita Shops Headquarters on Soto Street in Los Angeles, and about one week in downtown Los Angeles before that, in 1965. It was my first job in the US, shortly after i immigrated from a Central European country. I worked in the Data Entry department.
