In an ongoing and interesting discussion, I asked Macy’s executives to consider two things: (1) Reorganizing nationally to place a major division headquarters in St. Louis; (2)Operating a great Macy’s store in downtown St. Louis

Today, we got the good news.

Macy’s announced publicly that a new Midwest division headquartered in St. Louis will operate 110 stores in 9 states, including Famous-Barr, L.S. Ayres, Macy’s, and Kaufmann’s stores in Missouri, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana, and four other states.

This decision keeps good corporate jobs here — and preserves the City’s long history in the garment trade.
