In 1858, Rowland Hussey Macy established the department store known as Macy's. In 1994, it became a division of the Cincinnati-based Federated Department Stores, through which it is affiliated with the Bloomingdale's department store chain. The company was renamed Macy’s Inc, in the year 2007, and as at 2015, it was the largest Americas department store company by retail sales.
