Their flagship in downtown Detroit was massive, in fact, it was the world's tallest department store and America's second-largest department store (topped only by the Macy's in Herald Square).


Sadly, it was imploded on October 24, 1998.

Almost the same here, though I was only two when the downtown store closed to all but employees, though I did shop at the one at Southland Center.

There is a person named Karen Newman who recorded a Christmas song titled "It's Christmas Eve on Woodward Avenue." It's an olden-days Christmas story told from a Detroiter's perspective.

Hudson's, specifically their Thanksgiving Day Parade (which is known today as America's Thanksgiving Day Parade) was mentioned in the following lyric:
Santa Claus came to town
In the Hudson's Parade
