History[edit]

Lakeside Mall started as a joint-venture between A. Alfred Taubman and the Dutch investment company Rodamco. It opened in 1976 with four anchor stores: Hudson's, Sears, Crowley's, and J.C. Penney, with Lord and Taylor added in 1978 as a fifth anchor.[1] In 1999, after the Crowley's chain filed for bankruptcy, Hudson's purchased the Crowley's building and moved its men's clothing and home goods into it.[2]

In 2001, Hudson's stores are renamed Marshall Field's as part of a nameplate consolidation by parent Target Corp. Steve & Barry's also opened. f.y.e. relocated in 2006 to a smaller store, and H&M opened its first Michigan location in June 2006.[3]

Marshall Field's was one of several nameplates converted to Macy's in 2006, as Federated Department Stores (now Macy's, Inc.) had acquired Marshall Fields' then-parent, May Company. Both the main and auxiliary Macy's at Lakeside Mall were rebranded. A year later, plans were announced for a $3 million renovation of the mall and its periphery. Renovations included new signage and improved pedestrian access to the mall. Exterior renovations began in late 2008.[4]
