Finished - RIP Marshall Field & Co.

Marshall Field & Company 1852-2006.

Resquiat in Pace

Marshall Field, the founder of the venerable department store which arose from the ashes of the Chicago fire along with the city's resilient residents, was famous for his saying: "Give the lady what she wants." He was a retailing genius, a proud Chicagoan, and a gentleman. His progeny maintained his legacy for many, many years.

Macy's won't be adopting his motto.

Many Chicagoans are very unhappy.

Read the other stories here.

I am happy to read that Macy's employees will be wearing black.
