If you are in N.Y.C you have to visit Macy's. 11 floors of shopping and certainly not somewhere to go for a quick half hour. We decided to avail ourselves of the discount card that we could get because of having the New York pass. It entitles you to 10% off so we thought happy days but when we looked... More

So Macy's is the most amazing place ever. It's designer heaven. If you take your passport to the visitors centre they give you a 10% off card that's valid for a month. You can get everything except cosmetics and perfume. Needless to say that's where most of my money went. The staff aren't the most helpful people you'll ever met,... More

While visiting new York for our first my wife had to go see Macy's to our surprise it was HUGE, 9 floors of shopping and they had it all. It is a one stop shop for all your needs. The bad thing is it had so much that and we went to just look, well you won't just look, we... More

While you may not go there for a new wardrobe, it's worth spending an hour or so to check out this iconic shopping location. With endless floors to explore, you could spend all day there if shopping is your thing. Got to the higher floors so you can ride the old wooden escalators for a step back in time. This... More

Visited with intention of doing some serious shopping and I was not disappointed. Very friendly and helpful staff and the out of town discount was excellent. Love this store.

I don't know where to start from... I suspect they gather all the crap that can't be sold on other macys and bring them here. Yesterday I visited an other Macy's and I found the same pair of shoes 20 dollars cheaper, plus 20 percent discount. Also the stuff they had in other Macy's this month were much nicer, new... More

I went with the intention of spending money so wasn't browsing. I found some of the staff quite rude. The guy on MK watches was great, good customer service given so untimely spent a nice amount on a watch. The ladies on the Mac makeup counter just completely blanked me. I stood for around 15 minutes without even being acknowledged.... More

I´m not sure if it´s the largest department store anymore but its large dont you worry! Heaps of stuff so you should take your time and have a good look around because the prices are well worth the visit. The staff were mostly more than helpful but at some places (Sunglass Hut inside Macys!) they need a good kick in... More

I simply loved the friendly service I got in Macy's. I came to this place only because it is famous. I could have gotten the item I wanted at half the price and the same quality a few blocks away. But it was a once in a lifetime thing so I did it. The man who guided me to the... More
