Payton picks up a few tidbits and with a bit of analysis concludes that Marshall Field's days are limited. A Macy's in Chicago might not be the downfall we're anticipating, but one things for sure: someone right now is working hard to figure out how not to screw this up because all of Chicago will be watching. Note to Federated: I know it's stupid, but we want kick-butt Christmas windows. Don't let the bean-counters take that away.
