Britts, a Spokane-based 5 & 10 chain, was absorbed by J.J. Newberry in the late 1920s. In the early 1960s, the Britts name was revived for a national chain of Newberry-operated department stores. Two of the first Britts opened in late 1962; one at Annapolis' PAROLE PLAZA, the other at Fort Lauderdale's CORAL RIDGE PLAZA. Before the demise of the chain in early 1982, there were stores in Alabama, California, Florida, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Tennessee, Vermont, Texas, South Dakota and Washington State.
