A floorwalker is a sort of supervisor in a department store--he/she
walks around assisting customers, making sure the salesclerks are doing
their jobs, and, perhaps, approving special charges or deliveries.

The Emporium was a large, beautiful department store in downtown San
Francisco, on Market Street, just about opposite the cable-car
turn-around.
It closed sometime in the last decade.
