Even though it's always a packed house at the Fullwood Foundation benefit and awards breakfast, it's easy to spot foundation volunteers. They're the ones dressed in red. Volunteer Vicki Lynn Jenkins was a particular standout at Martin's West. Her outfit started with her plaid peep-toe pumps, says the 53-year-old property manager for Edgewood Management Corp. "I found them on sale, and then went looking for a suit to match them." Dressing up comes naturally to this Baltimore resident.

The closing of the Northeastern Baltimore County store marks the second time Lord & Taylor has bailed out of a Baltimore-area mall since it entered the local market in 1998. Its two remaining area stores are in Annapolis and Columbia.

Micha Weinblatt has an enviably short commute to work every day. Each morning about 9:30, he leaves the top floor of his parents' house in Potomac and heads to his job as founder of Crooked Monkey, a T-shirt company operated out of their low-ceilinged basement. It's a sweet gig, he admits, especially since Symcha Weinblatt doesn't require her 24-year-old son to pay for room and board or the basement office space. But Crooked Monkey is doing so well, Micha Weinblatt says, all that may soon change.

As chief executive of a major department store chain, Marshall Hilsberg says he knows what consumers want, and "value" is high on the list. That's not to say he'll promise his shoppers the lowest price on, say, a sweater.Hilsberg, after all, heads Lord & Taylor, the New York-based granddaddy of department stores that has built its reputation on American style and status, a chain expanding at a rapid pace and entering the Baltimore market this week -- and Hilsberg is not about to compete with Wal-Mart.
