    Gerber was a major department store in Memphis Tennessee and was started by John Gerber in 1880 and expanded over the years, eventually taking an entire downtown block. Gerber caused a sensation in 1949 with the first escalator in Memphis. Other suburban Gerber outlets soon followed.  After a series of major fires in the 1960s, the store was closed for good in 1974. The other locations were also closed one by one. The building was torn down in the 1980s and a hotel is now in its place.

    1. Pull a fabric tape measure or length of string around your head just slightly above the ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head.

    2. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. You are measuring your head exactly
    where the hat will sit in either inches or centimeters.

    3. If your measurement falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
