As far as the dual name-game goes, my local Burdines had some interior signs and bags that proclaimed it to be "Burdines-Macy's" for about a year. It is now just Macy's...

For whatever reason, retail management thinks that the dual names help out the consumers transition to the new name without much disruption.  What typically transpires is that the new store takes over, dismantles anything that resembles the old store, and succeeds in aggravating the shoppers.  

I mean, Bon-Ton spent a year being called some sort of combination of AM&A's and The Bon-Ton in western New York before just being "The Bon-Ton" and people still hated what the chain did to "their" AM&A's.  

And besides, in markets where a chain has been around for decades, people still use the old names anyway.

LOL--the only thing different about my Burdines now that it's a Macy*s is the signage...exactly like it used to be! Except that they are replacing the at least 40 year-old escalators...

And there lies a reason why companies like Federated and May no longer have any differentiation between their various divisions.  Federated has spent years now making Lazarus, Macy's, Burdine's, The Bon Marche, etc. basically the same store.  Same with May's stores...

Now they change the names, and it doesn't really matter because Burdine's was basically already Macy's.

Sure they are more profitable that way...but it's a little boring for the consumer...oh well.

I don't know if I'd say Macy's is more affordable than Sears or Penney's...if anything, Macy's has much more expensive goods.  Now, I'm not saying that the clothes aren't BETTER at Macy's - I'm just saying that Sears or JCP offer cheaper clothes.  

Personally, I don't think I've worn clothing purchased at Sears since I was 5 years old and I can't remember my last non-socks purchase at JCP.  Macy's is much more my style of clothing.

I guess it will be pretty cool to have a consistent choice (Macy's) across the country - but it's pretty boring when basically every mall in America will be anchored by Macy's, JCP, and Sears.

I went to Albany 2 days ago and saw 2 macy's, one in Colonie CEnter and one in Crossgates. The one in Crossgates looked like the one in the Fox run mall in Newington NH

that's because the Crossgates and Newington locations were both former Jordan Marsh stores :) Could you get a picture of the Newington location at all?

Isn't the Macy's at Colonie actually not the original location, but part of an expansion?  I think the original Macy's store is actually part of the mall now.

You are correct jmn3! The current Macys at Colonie Center was opened in 1991 when the mall was expanded with the food court, and 30 to 40 new stores. The newer Macys was a prototype store, featuring 3 levels, and a different layout. The Danbury, Connecticut store featured some of these styles, but, it was opened earlier than the Colonie store. The original Macys, was located near the center of the mall in the back. The original Macys is now more mall stores, and part of the hallway I believe. So, in reality, Colonie Center has always had a Macys, but two different stores. Also, on another note, the Sears at the other end of the mall has been there from the beginning as well(1966), and still features some of its 60's styling(the lighting, among other things), but it is not as noticable as it once was.

Come to think of it, I read an article about MAcy's moving to another part of the mall over 10 years ago and the old macy's became part of the mall and the old macy's was 180,000 square feet and the new onme is 300,000 square feet.

OK - Here's the location description - if you start at the Sears end of the mall and walk away from Sears - about 1/3 of the way down look for Friendly's on your right.   About 1 or 2 stores past that, you'll see a hallway to the right that leads to restrooms.  Now standing with that hall to your right, imagine a wall directly in front of you, stretching across the walkway - that's the front of the old Macy's.  Everything from that point on was either converted from the old store or added on when Macy's moved to their current location (this includes the Boscov's (formerly Steinbach's), the food court, and more).

I know that there was a sporting goods place (Hermans?) that moved into the mall from across Wolf Rd (about where the B&N and smaller shops are now) and I believe that it was in that location - after that it was a boat sales place or something for a time (I think) - Christmas Tree expanded the space out into the parking lot when they opened (as did Boscov's when they came in to the Steinbachs - that's why if you go around that side of the mall you'll see the post office kind of "hidden" in an inset between the two (Christmas Tree & Boscov's) - it's also why there are so few parking spots on that side.

P.S. - I think if you were to enter the mall using the doors alongside the post office and walk to the main hallway, you'd be pretty much over the hallway I mentioned on the lower floor - or just to your right would be the upper level of Macy's old store.

you'll have to resize the pics yourself by using photoshop or vueprint, or something like that. We can't do it on here. I wish we could. It'd be a lot easier..hehe.

so does the one in warwick ri and the ones in burlington mass, peabody mass and braintree mass and the old one in worcester mass that NEVER SAW IT TO BE A MACYS since that Jordan MArsh in worcester closed about 15 years ago.

That style was jordan marsh stores built in the late 60s and early 70s and those stores were huge.
