The F&R Lazarus & Company commonly known as Lazarus was a regional department store retail chain operating the midwest and based in Columbus, Ohio.
Simon Lazarus (1808–1877) opened a one-room men’s clothing store in downtown Columbus in 1851. By 1870, with improvements to the industry in the mass manufacture of men’s uniforms for the Civil War, the family business expanded to include ready-made men’s civilian clothing, and eventually, a complete line of merchandise. Lazarus developed or was an early adopter of many shopping innovations such as “one low price”, first department store escalators in the country, first air-conditioned store in the country, and Fred Lazarus Jr. successfully lobbied President Franklin Roosevelt to permanently fix Thanksgiving as the fourth Thursday in November, ensuring a stable timetable for the official beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
For over 150 years, Lazarus was influential in the American retail industry, particularly during the early 20th century as a founding partner in Federated Department Stores, and continued until the nameplate was retired on March 6, 2005, in favor of Macy’s.
NOT SHIPPABLE TO ITALY due to Italian customs prohibition.
