For decades, Chicago was home to some of America’s grandest department stores like Marshall Field’s, Carson Pirie Scott & Co, Sears, Wieboldt’s, Montgomery Ward’s, and Goldblatt’s. Generations of Chicagoans trekked to these stores for holiday shopping, celebrations, and fun. In this illustrated lecture, historian and author Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., explores the rise and fall of Chicago’s fabulous retail emporiums.
