Cost Plus Marks 50 Years
October 13, 2008,
Cost Plus World Market is beating the drum for its 50th anniversary. Founded on Fisherman's Wharf by San Francisco businessman William Amthor, Cost Plus has grown its original "out-of-the-crate" rattan furniture and basket trade into a 300-store chain.
A second prizewinner will receive the most iconic of Cost Plus prizes: the store's hallmark Papasan Chair, filled World Market goodies.
