  • In NY I found it difficult to find open stores. Luckily I found exactly what I needed at Macy's and the staff was very helpful and nice  more »
  • I shopped at Macy’s yesterday and was so pleased with how easy it was to get what I needed. Their children’s department is great and they offer a lot of different brands and good sale prices. I needed summer pajamas for 2 boys and found very nice cotton ones with fun designs at affordable prices. The store was also very clean compared to years ago. It was a good experience for me. Pleasantly surprised.
  • I love Macy's Harold Square. Always have good quality items - trained and often expert staff. It's just a NYC icon and a great place to spend some time shopping. Great basement kitchenware and a nice bar for a burger and beer before stepping back onto the busy streets of midtown. You haven't been to NYC if you haven't experienced this great department store.
