Remember Marshall Field’s at Franciscan Village
November 17, 2016 at 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Anyone who has waited in a Christmas line for the Walnut Room’s great tree can attest that Chicago’s loyalty to Marshall Field’s is fierce. Dayton-Hudson even had to take out advertising around town to apologize for changing the Field’s hallowed green bags. And with good reason — the store and those who ran it shaped the city’s streets, subsidized its culture and heralded its progress. So when the Marshall Field name was retired in 2006 after the stores were purchased by Macy’s, protest slogans like “Field’s is Chicago” and “Field’s: as Chicago as it gets” weren’t just emotional hype. Many still hope that name will be resurrected like the city it helped support during the Great Fire and the Great Depression. Until then, fans of Marshall Field’s can celebrate its history with this warm look back at the beloved institution.
Seating is limited so please RSVP by calling (630) 243-3479.
