The name of Carson Pirie Scott and Company dates to 1890, when Robert Scott joined the department store owned by Samuel Carson and John Pirie in Chicago. The business flourished and its main store long occupied an architecturally significant building at the corner of State and Madison streets. Although that store is now closed, its legacy remains in the chain of stores known as Carson's.
Carson Pirie Scott's website offers all the products of a full-service department store, with departments devoted to women's, men's, and children's clothing and accessories, plus home furnishings, kitchen items, and bed and bath products.
The women's clothing department ranges from active wear, such as hoodies and yoga pants, to business suits and separates. There are also plenty of casual jeans, tees, and leggings, plus special-occasion dresses. A good selection of coats appears for colder weather, while a swim shop reminds shoppers that summer is near. Carson's specialties include designer collections and a full bridal department. There is also a junior department for teenagers and young women.
Women can also shop here for shoes, in a range of styles from dressy to casual to athletic, along with boots, sandals, and slippers. Accessories include handbags, clutches, wallets, and belts, as well as scarves and sunglasses. Carson's also carries an assortment of cases for electronics such as ereaders, laptops, and tablets. For a bit of bling, there are also sections for jewelry and watches.
The men's clothing department is less extensive, but still carries a wide range of styles in athletic, casual, and business wear, plus pajamas, bathrobes, and warm winter coats.
