Lawrence Eliot “Lawrie” Marcus, the fourth son of Neiman Marcus cofounder Herbert Marcus and a former executive vice president of the retailer, died Friday at UT Southwestern-St. Paul University Hospital of kidney and heart disease. He was 96.
“I am saddened by the passing of Lawrence Marcus,” said Karen Katz, president and chief executive officer of Neiman Marcus Group. “He was an idea man and a master of marketing who often called me to talk about the latest trends in retailing. I will miss his thoughtful reflections on the store.…He was a connoisseur of luxury and elegance. In fact, I spied him not long ago in the store perusing a book on the history of the Fendi baguette bag.”
