Carson Pirie Scott and Company always enjoyed a sterling reputation in Chicago, even among the merchant princes of State Street.

It was a place that brought the world to the Midwest, from Parisian fashion to the authentic ambiance of the Mediterrenea dance numbers and the Santa's Village displays. Relive the friendly shopping experience that has kept the Carson's name alive for over a century and a half.
