About Marshall Field
Marshall Field & Company, founded in the 19th century by its namesake Marshall Field, operated as a department store in Chicago, Illinois, and was known for providing exceptional quality and customer service. Potter Palmer opened a dry goods store named P. Palmer & Company in 1852, which served as the antecedent for the department store chain. Field partnered with Potter and his brother Milton Palmer, renaming the store as Field, Palmer, Leiter & Company.
Eventually in 1881, Field bought out his partners and renamed the business “Marshall Field & Company”. The company built its famous State Street store in 1892, which was designed by influential architect Daniel H. Burnham, and installed the first of Marshall Field’s iconic landmarks Great Clocks. The store became the preeminent department store in the Midwest and eventually grew into a chain of department stores. Macy’s acquired the company in 2005, and officially renamed the former flagship location on State Street in the Loop of downtown Chicago as Macy’s on State Street in 2006. The store now operates as one of four Macy’s flagship stores.
NOT SHIPPABLE TO ITALY due to Italian customs prohibition.
