Marshall Fields and Christmas Memories
When the news story broke in September 2006 that the name would be changed, I was surprised at the sadness I felt. While the landmark clock and Marshall Fields plaque remain on the building, the name on the chain of stores purchased by the Federated Department Stores was changed to Macy's.
This Christmas the Frango mints could still be found, the tree reigned again in the Walnut Room and the decorated store windows enchanted children as they had me so many years ago, but it wasn't the same.
