Burines was a leading department store chain in the state of Florida. Founded in Miami, Florida in 1898, Burdines became part of Federated Department Stores, Inc in 1956. On January 30, 2004 it was renamed Burdines-Macy's, and only one year later on March 6, 2005 the Burdines name was dropped altogether and the division and its stores were renamed as Macy's Florida. Historically Burdines was known as the carriage-trade store in Florida. Many of its stores were decorated with pink walls, blue ceilings with streaks of clouds, and large plastic palm trees circling the center of the store. These icons still remain throughout Macy's stores in Florida.
