The May Company was a Los Angeles-based chain of mid-level department stores established in 1925 by the May family of St. Louis, Missouri. At its inception, the flagship store on Hill Street was one of the country’s largest department stores, occupying almost an entire city block.
Expansion into into other parts of the city and the suburbs began in the late-1930s, and continued right up until the company merged with J.W. Robinson stores in 1993 to form Robinsons-May.
In 2005, Federated Department Stores bought its parent company – the May Department Stores, and Robinsons-May was dissolved in 2005-6.
