Moving away from reliance on outside piecework, the Cleveland plant at 1600 E. 55 St. was built in 1916. The company incorporated in 1919. Throughout the 1920s-1930s, Richman Brothers continued to open new retail stores. After the deaths of the three Richman Brothers, the company was headed by Frank C. Lewman, and later by George H. Richman, until 1970, when Donald J. Gerstenberger became president and CEO. Expansion continued throughout the 1940s-1950s, despite problems with the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America which attempted to unionize Richman Brothers.

He graduated from John Adams High School and briefly attended Ohio State University. He started a home building business, Alvin Homes, with his childhood friend, Alvin Siegal. In the 1950s they built hundreds of homes in Brook Park near Cleveland Hopkins Airport. In the mid-1960s, Milstein started Associated Management Corporation, which developed high-rise apartment complexes in Cuyahoga, Lake, Lorain, Summit and Portage counties in Ohio. Most of these developments were subsidized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). By 1975 Milstein was the largest developer backed by HUD in northeast Ohio. Milstein's activities with HUD came under scrutiny in the late 1970s, when he was convicted of bribing a HUD official and spent four months in prison for the crime. In 1980, Milstein founded Prestige Management, which developed office parks.
