THE MAY ONCE SERVED AS CLEVELAND’S LANDMARK SHOPPING CENTER, LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE CITY’S RETAIL DISTRICT IN PUBLIC SQUARE.
Standing 149 feet tall and spanning 880,000 square feet, it was the third-largest department store in the country. It carved out a lane as a destination for fashionistas who wanted to shop at the trendiest stores from the hottest designers. For decades, The May was home to some of the biggest fashion shows in the Midwest, hosted by world-renowned brands including Vogue Magazine and Oscar de la Renta.
Despite the building's continual transformation - including multiple renovations, additions and upgrades - its roots in fashion and art still run deep. Today, more than 120 years after first opening its doors, The May is home to the newest downtown Cleveland apartments.
