Morris L. McCollum "Mr. Mac" born April 27, 1927 in Denver Colorado. Upon graduating high school, Mac joined the Navy and served on the USS Golden City in World War II. Inspired by his mother's years in retail, after leaving the Navy, Mac left college in Nebraska to pursue his own career in retail. Johnny Haas recruited Mac west to Tacoma to run his General store. After 2 years, Mac was able to open up his first store in Tacoma by the name of Mac The Knife. And the rest they say...is history
