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.
