Marshall Fields is a great Chicago department store. It has been so identified with the city that it would not be too much of a stretch to say that Marshall Fields is Chicago.
The great local natural history museum which has been there practically forever is the Field museum for gosh sakes, named after the same family that founded the store.
So now Macys has bought Fields and they are going to start calling Field's Macys. Blasphemy!
It is the end of an era.
Fields was famous for their policy, the customer is always right. They are famous for their holiday window displays, the Oak room, etc.etc. on and on.
Go see them before they become just another branch of a New York store.
