The chain expanded into Houston in 1948 Joske's, founded by German immigrant Julius Joske[1] in 1867, was a department store chain originally based in San Antonio, Texas. In December 1928, Hahn Department Stores acquired the company along with the Titche-Goettinger department store of Dallas, and three years later Hahn became part of Allied Stores. Allied was taken over by Campeau in 1986, and Campeau in turn sold the Joske's chain in 1987 to Dillard's.[2] All Joske's stores were then quickly converted into Dillard's locations.
