Department Store Closing

With at least 5 malls in the metropolitan area, this isn’t going to ruin anybody’s life, but Lord & Taylor is finally closing its Florida Mall location after threatening to do it for several years.

I see a mention of stuff on sale for $5.99. If you’re a bargain-hunter…HURRY!

The Sentinel says the store was popular enough to stay open for quite some time. This surprises me, because even when I suggested to my friends that we go scavenge for bargains, the reaction I got was mostly, “Whatever. If we get to it.” I think we all prefer Macy’s or even Bloomingdale’s (although Macy’s keeps me pretty happy by itself, I must admit).

Which leads me to ask, has anybody here ever bought anything at Lord & Taylor? Anybody going to miss it at all?

    I never bought anything there, but I wonder what store will take its place.

    The Florida Mall is the best! (in Orlando)

    Since Macy’s bought Federated, all Hecht’s, Burdines, etc have been converted Macy’s. And they are closing some stores……such as Lord & Taylor. So thats the real reason.
