Dillards

Dillards is an upscale department store headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas with stores throughout the United States. At the end of 2004, Dillards had about 300 stores in 29 states.

The chain traces its history to 1938 when William T. Dillard (1914-2002) opened his first store in Nashville, Arkansas with $8,000 and a generous credit line based on his family's experience in the grocery business. Mr. Dillard sold the first store and entered a series of partnerships and mergers in subsequent years.

The company was adept at turning around department stores and grew through a combination of new stores and mergers through the 1990s.

Dillard went public on the American Stock Exchange in 1969. Dillard's currently trades on the NYSE with the symbol DDS.

The stores tend to be located in suburban shopping malls. According to the Yahoo Profile Dillard's store had approximately 21,000 employees in 2014. The stores are concentrated heavily in the Central through Southwest region of the US.
