“Lord & Taylor and our customers have proudly supported our nation’s service members and their families throughout the years. In fact, since 1980 we begin each day in our stores by demonstrating our patriotism through the playing of the National Anthem,” said Liz Rodbell, president, Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor. “This Memorial Day weekend, we continue that tradition in our first partnership with the USO.”

“While we reflect on sacrifices of our nation’s military during Memorial Day weekend, we are glad Lord & Taylor customers will be able to show their support for our men and women in uniform,” said Michael Hoar, USO Vice President of Corporate Alliance. “Partnerships like this are important because they help the USO provide services and programs at our locations around the world.”
