Federated Stores

Federated says 330 May stores will become Macy's.

The Macy's name will soon be getting more exposure as some other department store brands disappear. Federated Department Stores says some 330 stores being acquired in its pending takeover of rival May Department Stores will be converted to Macy's.

A Federated spokesman says among the nameplates that will be gone by late 2006 are Famous-Barr, Filene's, Hecht's and Kaufmann's. The conversions will bring the total number of Macy's stores nationwide to 730. Federated says it is still studying the fate of the Marshall Field's name, which represents 60 stores.

The company also says it will keep the Lord and Taylor name, currently on 58 stores. In addition, Federated has announced plans to sell 68 stores next year -- 27 of them currently Federated locations.
