From 1895 to the first half of the 20th century, three department stores dominated the Phoenix retail market: Goldwater's; Korrick's, initially called The New York Store; and Diamond's, which started out as The Boston Store. All were located in downtown Phoenix and thrived on the competition.

Each store was founded, owned and operated by Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe at a time in history when Jews were restricted from swanky Phoenix landmarks such as the Phoenix Country Club and Camelback Inn.
