here is a pic of the Shore Mall store at Christmas Time back in 1994. At last I was reading, this store is to be demolished sometime this year.

Steinbach's was best known as being the store by the shore. This chain was based out of Asbury Park,NJ and had multiple locations throughout New Jersey and New York. In 1986,Steinbach's bought out the Ohrbach's chain to convert most of the stores in the NY/NJ area  but sadly like Abraham and Straus,Hahnes,Bamberger's and Stern's this chain closed most of its stores in 1995 and left three open  until the chain went out of business in 1999
