Featured in Miracle on 34 street, Macy’s always reminds me of timeless Christmas movie. Times had changed since but Macy will always be known by Miracle on 34 street. Grandiose, gorgeous store founded in 1868 by Rowland Macey was the first department store in New York. It’s grown to 690 stores under nameplate Macy’s and 170 outlets that sell quality merchandise, almost everything imaginable in retail. It’s fun to browse and admire vast selection of wonderfully displayed items. Shopping at Macy’s is ultimate treat. It’s a pleasure to get some treasure that makes you happy and experience luxury at its finest at miracle crown jewel of big 🍎retail.
I never expected myself to shop here as often as I do. This Macy's has everything under the sun, department store-wise. There are sales all the time in multiple departments. The store building itself is so massive you can easily get lost. Very conveniently, there are multiple bathrooms and restaurants throughout the building. During Christmas-time, the decorations inside and out are gorgeous, so it's definitely worth a visit during that time of year.
The range and variety of items at Macy's is exceptional. However the staff and customer service are absolutely appalling. In my experience the staff were unable or unwilling to assist me outside their assisgned brand department (literally meters from where they were standing), which caused me to miss purchasing the last of a garment that I wanted because I had to return the next day to ask someone from that brand. The staff have also been extremely rude to me and my family. My sister wanted to try on a dress for her senior prom and was yelled at to wait in line by 2 staff members who were sitting on the ground on their phones in the fitting room area. My sister's boyfriend and my father were trying on suits one evening and the staff couldn't divide their attention to help them without getting distracted talking to one another outside the fitting rooms. I understand that working in retail is frustrating and boring, I did it for 5 years whilst in school. This does not excuse the experience I have had at Macy's. The staff might not get tipped, but that doesn't matter. They work in a customer service role and the customer should ALWAYS be the priority, especially at such a reputable store. The lack thereof is extremely disappointing.
Disappointed with the Fall fashion items on the second to fifth floors. I bought a couple of very casual items. I was really interested in evening wear, and couldn't find anything I liked. Cost was not the issue... I guess I'll have to go to the competition. However, I am planning to go again in October in case there will be more exciting new Fall items. I like Macy's and will give it another chance.
What an amazing place! As it opened they played loud music and the employees stood there in a row welcoming the customers and clapping their hands! I bought 4 Levi’s jeans for example a 501 for 36$!! Wow those are 109€ in Germany! That was well worth it! Staff all time friendly and helpful! Macy’s is just great!
