LORD & TAYLOR TO OPEN NEW STORE ON PRESENT SITE IN OLD ORCHARD SHOPPING
 CENTER, SKOKIE, ILL., IN THE FALL OF 1993
 NEW YORK, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Lord & Taylor today announced plans to build a new, two-level store at its present location in the Old Orchard Shopping Center, Skokie, Ill., scheduled to open in the fall of 1993. To accommodate this new building, Lord & Taylor will close its present Old Orchard store on Jan. 20, 1993.
 The new state-of-the-art, 115,000-square-foot Lord & Taylor will replace the present three-story 61,000-square-foot store which opened in the Old Orchard Shopping Center in 1979.
 Marshall Hilsberg, chairman and chief executive officer of Lord & Taylor, said, "The action taken now to build a new store in the Old Orchard Shopping Center will greatly enhance Lord & Taylor's ability to serve our customers in the Chicago area and allow us to offer greater merchandise selection in an exciting and pleasurable shopping environment."
 All regular Lord & Taylor associates will be offered available options for continued employment at other Lord & Taylor locations.
 The interior of the new store will be a contemporary environment with a traditional ambiance and the utmost attention to detail in lighting, display cases, fixtures and general decor. The Lord & Taylor Old Orchard Shopping Center store will use high quality materials such as fabric-wrapped panels and white-washed oaks to accent the merchandise and create a comfortable, pleasing atmosphere for shoppers.
 The classic elegance of the interior will have a honey-vanilla color palette as a backdrop. Clean beiges are complemented by hues of coral, soft seafoam and forest green.
 Lord & Taylor's tradition of offering value, quality, friendly personalized customer service and fashion -- showcasing American designers -- will continue to be an integral part of the new Old Orchard store.
 At 166 years old, Lord & Taylor is America's oldest specialty department store and considered to be the signature of American style. It was the first major retailer to recognize and support American fashion talent in the early 1940s, and continues to do so today. A division of the May Department Stores Company (NYSE: MA), Lord & Taylor currently operates 47 stores in 15 states and the District of Columbia.
