Marshall Field and Company Building
Known as the Macy’s on State Street, the former Marshall Field and Company Building houses a rich history of the development of the department store. ‘Give the lady what she wants’ was the motto of Mr. Marshall Field, the man behind the successful chain store. The idea of ‘window shopping’ and ‘customer service’ was essentially developed in this building. Marshall Field strove to give the customer what they wanted — to make their shopping experience the best they have ever had. Not only was this building a hub for sales but also houses beautiful architectural gems, such as a mosaic ceiling done by Tiffany & Co.
