OK, I was living in the St. Louis area, and I don't remember
any Xerox stores here. I knew a lot of the people who owned
computer stores here around that time. I was the president
and sort-of founder of our local computer club, so I knew
most of the people involved with retail computer stuff from
about 1976 to at least 1985.
But, of course, there was a LOT more activity in certain
areas than my own backwater.
