April 13 in San Antonio history…

Dillard’s reaches an agreement with the Allied Stores Corporation and their new owner, the Campeau Corporation, to purchase the 27 Joske’s stores in Texas and Arizona.  Some of the Dillard stores in Texas have competed with Joske’s, and William Dillard Sr., Dillard’s chairman, called the merger ”an important strategic step for our company, which will significantly enhance our presence in Texas and Tennessee.”

Taco Cabana buys Sombrero Rosa.

Albertson’s closes all 20 of their San Antonio stores at 7 p.m.  The company had already closed stores in Laredo, Corpus Christi, Pharr, Mission, Harlingen, San Juan, Edinburg, Brownsville and Weslaco on March 17.
