Ivey's (J.B. Ivey & Company), a former department store chain, was acquired by Dillard's, Inc. in 1990. Ivey's was based in Charlotte, North Carolina, and was founded in 1900 by Joseph Benjamin Ivey.


Ivey's was purchased by Marshall Field's in 1980. Marshall Field's itself would be purchased by BATUS Retail Group in 1982. Field's and its The Crescent, Frederick & Nelson, and Ivey's divisions joined other BATUS divisions, Gimbel's, Kohl's, and Saks Fifth Avenue. BATUS sold Ivey's to Dillard's in 1990, prior to the sale of Marshall Field's to Dayton Hudson Corporation. Ivey's typically offered more upscale merchandise than another Charlotte-based chain, Belk, which was a competitor to Ivey's in many Southern cities. The two chains were frequent neighbors at many malls and in many downtowns.
