Liberty House sold, will become Macy's

Federated Department Stores Inc. announced yesterday that it will buy Liberty House, Hawai'i's oldest and largest department store chain, and turn it into Macy's.

The acquisition, expected to be completed as early as July 9, includes the entire company and all assets — 11 department stores, seven resort and specialty stores in Hawai'i, and one department store in Guam.
