Portrait of Brigham Young with cane and top hat. ZCMI Brigham Young Award. Legend has it that in the early days of ZCMI, Brigham Young was taking a customary tour of the store when he noticed a "wavy" mirror. Immediately he raised his cane and smashed the mirror into a thousand pieces saying, "We don't sell that to anyone!" By so doing, he set a standard of excellence for "America's First Department Store" which continues to this day. Our replica cane represents the highest standard of quality and service.
