Event Details

In-person and Online

For decades, Chicago was home to some of America’s grandest department stores. Clustered along a mile-long stretch of State Street, stores like Marshall Field’s, Carson Pirie Scott, Sears, Wieboldt’s, Montgomery Ward’s, and Goldblatt’s set new standards for retail innovation, customer service and visual display. Historian and author Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., revisits Chicago’s fabulous retail emporiums and explores their rise and fall.
