    article usage about the names of department stores

    1. We use 'the' with these kinds of place names: rivers (the Rhine), deserts (the Sahara), etc.
    2. We don't use 'the' with: continents (Africa), towns (Oxford), streets (Park Street), etc.
    How about the names of department stores? Do they belong to #1 ('The' is necessary.) or #2 (Zero article.)?
    Thank you very much for your reply.
