Re: Roll call of defunct retailers

Actually bought by Federated Department Stores which owned Lazarus here in Columbus and a number of the others listed. They bought the bankrupt Macy's chain and then changed Lazarus, Fields, Ayres, Kaufmann's and most of their other chains to the Macy's brand because of it's fame. Bloomingdale's, as you mentioned, was the only one they owned that they did not change to Macy's.

Good design

Roll call of defunct retailers

See the list on the end wall.

All gone now, or assimilated by the Borg.....oops, bought by Macy's.

Only Bloomingdale's still survives as a nameplate, I believe.
