You are correct.

http://www.ranker.com/list/companies...nver/reference

Northrop Grumman is listed above as being a "Denver-born" corporation but like many aerospace firms, it has acquired, divested and consolidated so many times over the years it is hard to keep track. Falls Church, VA is listed as its headquarters.

Boston's Macy's company is not the one everyone knows about today. It was a different venture by the same guy who went on to establish the Macy's department store in NYC in 1858.

Right. Who owns it today? Is it still Target or is it its own corporation? Where is it now based?
