Sinopsis: Anyone who has waited in a Christmas line for the Walnut Room's Great Tree can attest that Chicago's loyalty to Marshall Field's is fierce. Dayton-Hudson even had to take out advertising around town to apologize for changing the Field's hallowed green bags. And with good reason--the store and those who ran it shaped the city's streets, subsidized its culture and heralded its progress. The resulting commercial empire dictated wholesale trade terms in Calcutta and sponsored towns in North Carolina, but its essence was always Chicago. So when the Marshall Field name was retired in 2006 after the stores were purchased by Macy's, protest slogans like "Field's is Chicago" and "Field's: as Chicago as it gets" weren't just emotional hype. Many still hope that name will be resurrected like the city it helped support during the Great Fire and the Great Depression. Until then, fans of Marshall Field's can celebrate its history with this warm look back at the beloved institution.
About the Author: Gayle Soucek is an author and freelance editor with more than a dozen books to her credit, including Chicago Calamities and two other titles with The History Press. Her next project is the story of Field's favorite competitors, Carson Pirie and Scott, due to be released by The History Press in late 2013. She is a lifelong Chicagoan and Blackhawks hockey fan, residing in the far northwest suburbs with her photographer husband, dogs, parrots, reptiles and one very laid-back cat. Shopping at Field's was her favorite hobby, and she relished the opportunity to revisit the great store in these pages.
