Lord & Taylor - A retail visionary
If there is a trendsetter in the retail industry, then Lord & Taylor is it. With a history that dates back to 1826 when English immigrants Samuel Lord and George Washington Taylor founded their first store in Manhattan, Lord & Taylor is one of the very few stores that has managed to not just endure the cutthroat retail industry but also make an impact in it. It boasts a laundry list of firsts: the first retailer to move to Fifth Ave, a major retail fashion artery in NYC, the first to boast Christmas window displays, a tradition copied and continued by many retailers, the first to install an elevator, and most importantly, the first store to name a woman as president. Not many retailers can also boast a headquarters that is a designated NYC landmark, but Lord & Taylor surely does. An almost century-long dedication to service, quality and style can still be found in the 50 stores scattered across ten states.
