DEERFIELD, Ill. — Paul Daube Jr., founder of The Daube Co., an influential buying group for the big & tall market, passed away at his home Saturday, May 5. He was 78.
Daube is credited with helping develop the big & tall market for independent retailers.

Eventually The Daube Co. came to serve as the merchandising arm of BATA (Big & Tall Associates).

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
