As a Chicago resident (and former Field's employee) I was upset at losing Marshall Field's department stores when they were purchased by Macy's and renamed. I believe I made a promise that I would never step foot inside the store and that I would never purchase anything there. I rolled my eyes at every public relations move they made to make the transition as painless as possible for us. But I don't think I can hold out much longer, as a matter of fact I may have to break my boycott of Macy's soon.
Macy's is bringing back the Spring Flower Show to the legendary State Street store. The last time this event was held there was back in 2002, this years theme centers around Africa.
