Macy's Undergoes Year Long Facelift


Sometimes, too much change is a bad thing.

Take, for example, the downtown Macy's—formerly the landmark Meier & Frank, Portland's premier old-school department store since apporximately 900 BC. Macy's, the store's owner, rebranded it in September, then shut its doors last Saturday for a major remodel. The store's reopening is vaguely forecast for "holiday 2007," with six floors of shopping. A hotel on the top levels won't be completed until 2008.

The historic 148-year-old building on Southwest 5th Avenue is already under the jackhammer. Pick up tomorrow's paper to read reporter Alice Joy's look at the last moments of a Portland icon.
