Federated's history is a combination of
many great retailers forming to become one.
Rowland H. Macy opens R.H. Macy & Co.
as a dry goods store in New York City in 1858. First-day sales
totaled $11.06. First year sales would total $86,000. The Straus
family acquired a general partnership with Macy's in 1888.
In 1872, the Bloomingdale Brothers, Inc.
was founded in New York City by Lyman and Joseph Bloomingdale.
First-day sales totaled $3.68.
In 1902, Macy's moves to Herald Square
in New York City. In 1924, Macy's Herald Square location becomes
largest store in the world, following completion of 7th Avenue
addition. Also, 10,000 people watch Macy's first Thanksgiving
Federated Department stores was born on
March 1929 through the combination of Abraham & Straus of
Brooklyn, Filene's of Boston, F&R Lazarus & Co. of Columbus,
OH and Bloomingdale's of New York. As the company emerged from
the Great Depression and World War II, Federated would experience
significant growth. New shopping malls began to sprout across
the country beginning in the 1960s and these centers would greatly
expand Federated sales as it became anchor tenants in the malls.
Federated acquired May Department Stores
in 2005. In September 2006, 400 former May stores around the
country converted their names to Macy's. These regional stores
include Marshall Field's, Filene's, Hecht's/Strawbridge's, Kaufmann's
The company today operates only Macy's
and Bloomingdale's stores, with both brands expanding nationwide.
