New Orleans doesn't have THAT sort of experience. If you just want run of the mill department stores that have everyday shopping for almost any budget, there's Dillard's, Macy's, and J.C. Penney at Lakeside Mall in Metairie. I don't endorse one over the other because they all serve their own purposes, they're just nothing special.
I wouldn't say nothing special.... Penny's has Sephora,and Ralph Lauren's American Living brand . Macy's has exclusives (Tommy,Inc,Rachel rachel roy, MAdona's material girl and etc.) and Dillard's has a history in the South. Plus Khol's and Target are pick up some slack too.

Yeah but none of these stores are actually IN the city of New Orleans.

There's no Kohl's in the New Orleans area. Apparently, there's one coming to Kenner but not for awhile. If you think all those places are so great and you know we have them, why are you arguing? It's all a matter of opinion/preference anyway.

I'm a fan of J.Crew (which is opening at Canal Place) and Banana Republic/Gap.

Heavens yes! Third Street had everything. It was the place to go for anything you needed, and if you couldn't find it there, you went up the road to Goudchaux's to see if Erich Sternberg had it.

My wife, who is from New Roads, talks about how when she was growing up, they would get up really early and catch the Greyhound bus into downtown Baton Rouge for a shopping day, and stop in for lunch at the original Piccadilly.

I wish it was still like that.

We always did our Christmas pics at the MB's on Canal. I can remember the tail end of the Canal Street shopping era. Oh the days back when mom would put us in dresses and head to Canal Street! People just don't do that now days.

Not a department store, but we have an embarassingly low number of places to buy musical instruments given our reputation. Apparently there's some little shop in the Bywater but after that the only full-range stores I know of are Louisiana Music Exchange (tiny) and Guitar Center (corporate crap).
