Marshall Field's has been owned by British-American Tobacco, the Dayton-Hudson Corporation (which later became Target), and May Co., but when New York-based Federated Company bought May in 2006, they changed the legendary Chicago stores to Macy's. The change enraged Chicagoans and lead to large boycotts.
