Levy's (department store)

Levy's, also known as Levy Brothers, was a department store based in Tucson, Arizona, United States. It was founded in 1950 by Jewish brothers Jacob and Ben Levy, who acquired the former Myers & Bloom department store in downtown Tucson.

A second Levy's was later added at El Con Mall, Tucson's oldest shopping mall.cite web |url=http://www.tucsoncitizen.com/ss/history_culture/66181.php |title=Synagogue's revival celebrated |accessdate=2007-11-20 |last=Vitu |first=Teya |date=2007-10-18 |work=Tucson Citizen] cite web |url=http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/printDS/202609 |title=Deserted core of El Con Mall may be razed |accessdate=2007-11-19 |last=Poole |first=B. |date=2007-09-23 |work=Arizona Daily Star] This store was followed by one in Foothills Mall in 1983.

The store at El Con Mall changed names several times. The store was owned by Federated Department Stores, which absorbed it into its other subsidiary (Sanger-Harris) in 1985; Sanger-Harris became Foley's in 1987 and was sold to May Company in 1988. In 1997 May Department Stores absorbed Foley's into its other subsidiary (Robinsons-May), a name which it held until a 2005 conversion to Macy's. This location closed in 2008, and is currently vacant. The Foothills Mall store similarly became Sanger-Harris, and then Foley's; however, it was closed in 1994 as Foley's, and is now divided between Ross Dress for Less and Linens 'n Things.
