Dillard’s is a publicly traded company (NYSE: DDS). In 2010 they reported $6.1 billion in revenue, $343 million in operating income, $180 million in net income, $4.3 billion in assets, and $2 billion in equity.
The first Dillard’s store was opened in Nashville, Arkansas by William T. Dillard in 1938. Many of the executives in the company remain members of his family tree.
Initially, Dillard’s grew by acquiring other department stores. In 1969, Dillard’s was a publicly traded corporation.
It wasn’t until the company went public that they were able to expand at a rapid rate. In the 70s and 80s, Dillard’s stores began to open at a rapid rate, particularly in suburban shopping malls. Part of this expansion was natural, but most of it was the result of strategic acquisition.
Today, there are more than 330 stores spread across 29 states.
