NEW YORK — Department stores are flag wavers, but which one can claim the title of “America’s department store”?
It’s up for grabs, with Lord & Taylor, the nation’s oldest department store, playing “The Star Spangled Banner” daily to open its Fifth Avenue flagship; Bloomingdale’s brandishing the U.S. flag and those of other nations on its facade, and J.C. Penney with a red, white and blue logo evoking Old Glory.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
