A famous Chicago department store chain first established in 1852. Famous for its excellent service, Frango mint chocolates, State Street flagship store in downtown Chicago, clocks on the corners of the flagship store, and the Tiffany Favrile Ceiling.

In 2006, all Marshall Field's locations became Macy's when they acquired Marshall Field's parent company, the May Department Store Company. The acquisition and name change sparked many protests and a boycott of Macy's by former Field's shoppers.
