The Peoria location is the corporate headquarters.  All aquistations remain in
their original spots.  Popcorn Factory in Chicago area, SpringHill in Tipp
City, Ohio, HearthSong in Rhonert Park, Michigan Bulb in MI, and Stark Bros.
in Louisiana, MO., etc.  They quietly buy and operate.  Not bad for a gift
store company started by Hellen Gallagher and Tom Foster.  The International
Business School at the U in Peoria was funded by Tom.
