Ohrbach's was a basic nationwide chain but three states housed this chain. New York,New Jersey and California. This store was best known for supplying wardrobes for the cast of "The Dark Shadow", a NBC daytime soap back in the 1960's. In the New Jersey/New York region, these stores were absorbed by Steinbach's (no relation) a Asbury Park chain in 1986 which turned former Ohrbach stores in New Jersey by 1987 and some in New York to Steinbach's until their fate in 1995.
