Lord and Taylor NEEDED to make itself over. I have shopped off and on there for about 15 years, and May Stores, which owns the chain and is one of the more banal chains, IMO, in this country, really drove it downscale. There's no way that you should get the same merch in L&T as in Robinson's-May.
I think there's room for diversification within the department store sector and too many aren't very different from each other.
In Teri Agins' The End of Fashion, I remember reading that Federated (Bloomingdales, Macy's and others' parent) dropped designer and bridge merchandise from most of its stores. I'm a bridge buyer, as I'm sure many other career-type women are, so you drive a good customer away by cutting to the likes of Liz.
Less homogeneous with these brands would be nice.. every mid-level department store you go into has racks and racks of apparel and accessories that are practically identical. That's how they keep costs down for the middle-class consumer; by copying other companies' designs and mass producing things in Taiwan. But, honestly, do they really need the "Jelly Kelly" bags and the like?
