I grew up in NYC, and remember going to this Macy's often to shop. I suppose over time, however, it has become more of a tourist attraction than a place to actually browse and purchase. The store is crowded, with impersonal, brusque service. Racks of clothes are crammed together, and the whole place is overheated, uncomfortable, and unpleasant. If you've... More

Spent 2 hours on the 7th floor women's wear wardrobe shopping. Great brand names at good prices. But what really made my experience wonderful was an employee named Laverne. She was incredibly nice, professional, and extremely helpful. She helped me picked out many pieces of clothing, and bent over backwards to help lower my final bill with special offers, coupons,...

This is a must do when visiting NYC. We went in for some early Christmas shopping and stumbled on the best sales with most items marked down over 60%. The staff was friendly and professional. When I produced a 10% off coupon at checkout, the cashier came up with a 15% one for us to use.

Enjoyed it here! Don't get me wrong, Woodbury Common is well worth the trip if you can. If you can't then Macy's is the place!

People orderly crowd the windows posing mostly appropriately for photos in front of one of the various themed windows. It is Christmas. No one is NY rude or even Chicago rude. Just parents stressing with their kids for that perfect picture they never quite get.

This place is huge you just get lost in there. Not as pleasant to the eye as bloomingdales but still a great place to shop. Worth a visit

We were lucky to turn up at a sale. So I bought a fair number of things. It is massive but it's open till late so you can explore New York during the day. It is fairly expensive but if you show your passport they'll give you 10% off. The food is good there too but pricey.

Macy's is just far too big to make it a pleasant experience. I am sure shoppers go here just to say they have been. 8 floors, each one probably 4 times the size of a John Lewis floor. Yes there is everything you want here including Starbucks and macdonalds within the store and they must have a permanent sale here... More
