For millions, the very name Polk Bros. evokes the excitement that surrounded the purchase of the familys first television set, first automatic washing machine, first dishwasher. It stirs memories of Polks colorful army of lets make a dealMoreFor millions, the very name Polk Bros. evokes the excitement that surrounded the purchase of the familys first television set, first automatic washing machine, first dishwasher. It stirs memories of Polks colorful army of lets make a deal salesmen- of promotions that included carloads of Georgia watermelons- of live television, midnight movies and Santa Clauses. Polk Bros. has been imitated many times over, but the extraordinary confluence of events, technologies, personalities, and places that created the Polk Bros. phenomenon is unlikely to occur ever again. Here for the first time is the story of how the Polk family developed the first modern retail appliance superstore.
