During his career, Robert V. Glaser had a role as part of a team responsible for making high-end investments, one of these investments being the plus size clothing and fashion department store Catherines.
Catherines cemented its place in history by focusing on full-figured women well before it was considered fashionable to do so. Back in 1960, an enterprising woman named Catherine Weaver spearheaded the opening of a small boutique located in Memphis, Tennessee. As a plus size woman, Weaver sought to bring a fusion of beauty, style, and confidence to clients with an otherwise limited selection of fashion choices.
Catherine Weaver’s gamble proved to be successful. Today, there are close to 400 Catherines stores across the United States selling stylish clothing catering to women who need sizes ranging from 16W to 34W and 0X to 5X, and it continues to maintain its brand promise of “We Fit You Beautifully”. The company also sells products through its catherines.com online store.
