ⓘ ONeils

The M. ONeil Co. was a regional department store chain based in Akron, Ohio, United States. ONeils dominated the Akron and Canton retail markets. Founded in 1877, the store grew to several locations in northeastern Ohio. Owned by May Department Stores, in 1989 it was merged with Mays Cleveland division, May Company Ohio, which was subsequently merged into its Pittsburgh division, Kaufmanns, in 1993. May Department Stores was purchased by Federated Department Stores in 2005 and all its regional chains merged into Macys in 2006.

                                     

1. History

ONeils began in 1877, when Irishmen Michael ONeil and Isaac Dyas opened a dry goods store at 114 East Market Street. On the death of Dyas in 1892, the store became the M. ONeil Co. Acquired by May Department Stores for $1 million in 1912, it opened a new store in downtown Akron in 1927 that remained through the late 1980s. It eventually came to operate stores throughout the Akron and Canton areas. In 1989 the main store in downtown Akron was closed, and its remaining locations merged with May Company Ohio. With the merger, the ONeils name was retired.

Branch stores in later years were at Summit Mall in Fairlawn, Chapel Hill and Rolling Acres malls in Akron, Belden Village and Mellett Canton Centre malls in Canton, 30th Street Plaza in Canton, Stow-Kent Plaza in Stow, Richland Mall in Ontario, and in Coshocton. Earlier branches included stores in downtown Canton, Lorain, Alliance, Massillon and Mansfield and in the Akron suburbs of Cuyahoga Falls, Barberton and Fairlawn at Fairlawn Plaza.

The downtown Akron ONeils department store featured large display windows along the front and sides of the massive store where seasonal displays were set up for viewing by the public. During the holiday season, large elaborate animated displays of elves in Santas workshop, nutcrackers, teddy bears, trains and various toys played under Christmas trees. These displays were a main feature of downtown Akron during the holiday season, along with the displays in the windows of ONeils rival store, Polskys, directly across South Main Street.
