Just about everyone loved Gold Triangle stores while they existed. Gold Triangle was owned by Federated Department Stores that decided in 1968 to establish a discount hardlines chain of stores in Florida. Federated was already operating Burdine's in Florida.
According to a forum on department stores: Gold Triangle had 6 stores, located as follows:
Store 001 Dadeland (pictured above at 7420 SW 88th Street, Kendall)
Store 002 Skylake, (NE 185th Street, North Miami Beach - became a Home Depot in 1982)
Store 003 Plantation
Store 004 Orlando (Colonial Drive, west of the Orlando Fashion Square Mall - now a Target)
Store 005 Tampa (2525 N. Dale Mabry Boulevard - now a Sweetbay Supermarket)
Store 006 Hialeah (W. 49th Street).
Gold Triangle's main office was originally located at 325 W. 74 Street in Hialeah until the Hialeah store location was built. Then the main offices and warehouse were moved to the new store (approx 1978). None of them became Richway or Gold Circle. These were the only Gold Triangle locations.
