Catering to the state's unique topography and climate, it's called the Florida Store for good reason.. The Store-y
The ubiquitous palms tree--the ultimate logo for Florida--adorns the exterior and its plastic likeness is scattered throughout the interior. Merchandise reflects our subtropical lifestyle, and basic fashions boast a distinctly tropical flair. Upscale shoppers can peruse racks of DKNY, Polo, Tommy Hilfiger and Jones New York, while the more frugal-minded won't be disappointed by a myriad of mid-range brands and fabulous sales. Burdine's caters to full-figured women with the store's signature label Style & Company, with sizes ranging from 14 to 24. Besides apparel, Burdine's offers home furnishings, a bridal registry and beauty salons.
Down to Business
In 1898, visitors to Miami stepped off the train to find the mega-store that William M. Burdine opened. Work clothes, notions, and piece goods were sold to local residents, soldiers from the Spanish-American War, and Native Americans. Over the decades, the number of Burdine's multiplied as tourism boomed. Currently you can stop in at 52 stores across the state.
