About Marshall Field
Marshall Field & Company was a department store in Chicago, Illinois, founded in the 19th century by namesake Marshall Field. His stores known for exceptional quality and customer service. The department store chain traces its antecedents to a dry goods store opened in 1852 by Potter Palmer, named the P. Palmer & Company. Field entered into a partnership with Potter and his brother Milton Palmer and renaming the store Field, Palmer, Leiter & Company.
In 1881, Field bought out his partners, renaming the business “Marshall Field & Company”. In 1892, the famous State Street store was built, designed by influential architect Daniel H. Burnham, and the first of Marshall Field’s iconic landmark Great Clocks was installed. The store became the preeminent department store in the Midwest and eventually grew into chain of department stores. Macy’s acquired the company in 2005. The former flagship location on State Street in the Loop of downtown Chicago was officially renamed Macy’s on State Street in 2006. It is now one of four Macy’s flagship stores.
