Nine floors. NINE. I'd never seen anything remotely like it.
Whatever it is you're looking for, you'll find it there - not necessarily at a price you'll like if you're on a budget. However, if you're in NYC for a shopping spree, this is the place!
The only thing that makes this place special it's the location in the middle of NYC, the size of it and atmosphere of holiday shopping frenzy.
What to buy So much to buy so little time.
What to pay Store is kind of like Wal Mart, but you get everything for more instead of less.
Possibly the most famous dept store after Harrods, if in NYC you have to visit this place.
Was not as big as I expected, nor were there bargains such as TV would have you believe. However, there are some good buys.
What to buy I got my sister some perfume reduced from over 300 dollar to around 30 dollar. So if you are buying smellies, its good place. The staff do tend to pounce on you, esp if they see you are looking to make some purchases
Love to shop? This is the place for you!
Macy's is a chain of American department stores with its flagship store in New York City. This has been named the "world's largest store" since 1924.
There are several spots where you can stop for a bite to eat, including the Cellar - one of my faves.
What to buy Clothing, footwear, bedding, furniture, jewelry, beauty products, and housewares
The largest store in the world! Before you get out the plastic, get a directory of the store from the Information Desk because with 10 floors - you won't know where to start.
What to buy Designer clothes and accessories.
What to pay Less than you would pay in the UK for a start!!
I am sure that this tip is somewhere on this site but just in case "you" have not read it , make sure that you got to the information stand at Macys as a tourist you are intitled to a discount card which gives you 10/15% off and that is on top of the other discounts running in the stores as well. all you need to get it is to show your passport or even an non amarican credit card
Acclaimed to be World Largest store, I was quite suprise that Macy's is still using wooden made escalator (looks like in run down state) but was not apparently as new yorkers wanted to keep as it was before when first open.
Lots of choices similar like what you'll find in John Lewis or Selfridges in London. Prices are the main factor as things are cheap to compare in the UK. Downside is that, most sizes sold in this department is lack of choice on small size or tend to have more XL as everybody here in America is extreme large.
What to buy Ralph Lauren items is much more cheaper to compare the UK.
What to pay At least 15% prices different comparison of the UK
Of course we had to visit Macy's while in New York City so one day we made our way to Broadway & 34th Street so we could visit the famous store. It didn't look so big to start with but inside it is really huge. They have just about anything you could want to buy at Macy's it seems...
What to buy We ended up buying some baby gifts for friends as well as some baseball hats in there.
Macy's is the name of a chain of American department stores including a flagship store in New York City which has long been billed as the "world's largest."
What to buy Macy's offers everything from the latest designer fashions to Nintendo's Game Boy. Have lunch at one of the stores' several cafes after a hard day of shopping; I recommend a banana split at the Fountain Cafe in the children's department. A trip to Macy's wouldn't be complete without a visit to The Cellar, Macy's collection of gourmet shops in the basement.
So many floors you can easily get lost in this mega-shop.
There are even places men can escape to when visiting Macy's, as if you are with any women, I'm sure they will want to stay there all day!
Well from reading other people's pages and of course seeing it on soaps in the States, Macy's seemed like the perfect place to pick up a bargain! So having not seen it on my first trip there, therefore missing the window displays...I knew it was an absolute MUST to go see it on my return!
But when I entered, it felt just like a really old department store and everything looked quite messy on the hangers and shelves...nothing in any remote way wanted me to stay there and peruse the goods. In fact, the main reason we went in was because we needed to use the bathroom!The one thing I will say that they HAVE got going for them however, are the wooden floored escalators...they were really cool!
Please tell me if Im wrong, but I just couldn't get excited about it at all. But for those who would like to go there still after my not so positive account of the place, you'll be pleased to know that there are 13 floors, including a floor which is called 'one and a half' ! There are 10 different restaurants in here including the obligatory McDonalds and Starbucks and then some nicer places too!
And just for those of you who are interested, gift cards are available too for amounts from $10 - $10,000!!! Anyone want to be my friend?!
