This classic Chevrolet newsreel from 1936 features models showing off the latest beach fashions from Burdines Department Store in Miami. As the announcer states “Winter fashions here set summer styles for the whole country”. The first Burdines was opened in 1896 and at times operated with the slogan “the Florida store”. In 1956, Burdines became part of Federated Department Stores, Inc and in 2004 was renamed Burdines-Macy’s. In 2005, the name Burdines was dropped altogether.
