Hecht’s Department Store

Department stores have a long history in the United States, and another memorable name during the department store era was Hecht’s. Founded in 1857, the chain existed primarily in the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S., especially in the Washington DC/Maryland/Virginia area. The chain started humbly as a used furniture store but expanded into other markets and other locations. Hecht’s was never as expansive as some chains, but it did boast an impressive number of stores in its more than one hundred years in business. In the 1950s, the Hecht’s chain was acquired by a larger company. When that company was acquired by an even bigger company in 2005, the merger spelled the end for Hecht’s; remaining locations were either closed or rebranded as Macy’s.
