I have never heard of them until this post. I googled and came up with JM's interesting history:

Jordan Marsh - Wikipedia

It says that many of the JM stores were taken over by Macy's.

Yes, the Jordan Marsh in our city took over the building that was occupied by Bon Marche and was down the street from Cherry and Webb.

Does anyone remember the great Christmas display they used to have on the upper floor where the furniture was? I took my children to see their Santa every year whether they wanted to go or not because it was the best Christmas display anywhere. I'll have to ask my boys if they remember the Santa ........ they will think I have lost it!

Those blueberry muffins were huge and used to run over the edge of the muffin pan, but they always came out cleanly .... mine, not so much, had to sort of, kinda, dig them out, but we ate them anyway.
