Definite Loss of a Canadian Icon?

This one is different than this one, though.

The move marries the two oldest department store retailers in North America, and will create an $8-billion (U.S.) merchandising powerhouse for the new buyer, NRDC Equity Partners of Purchase, N.Y. It will combine HBC's Bay, Zellers, Home Outfitters and Fields chains with NRDC's Lord & Taylor and Fortunoff, the jewellery and home decor chain.
I have never ever heard of "Lord & Taylor".

I don't know if I have heard of it either. And poop, there goes any reason to shop at Zellers instead of Walmart.

Well, technically, HBC has been owned by an American for a couple of years now.

That said, I'm surprised they're rebranding some stores. I've heard of Macy's, JC Penney, Target, all those stores ... but Lord & Taylor? Never.
