Macy's good points: Lots to browse and buy in a permanent "SALE" situation. We bought a selection of men's shirts and jeans - all good quality and at very reasonable prices. The shop assistants were helpful and informative. Bad Point: Checked out the Ladies' toilets but they were so dirty that we just couldn't face them and went elsewhere.

The week before we visited Macy's in New York we had been staying just outside Boston and had visited the Macy's there where our older daughter had been delighted with a Michael Khors handbag that she had purchased. At that time we had managed to get a discount card whereby on production of your passport, foreign visitors can get money... More

Ok so there's no doing that the place is massive! And it's filled with all your designer goods but u did y see very much for the bargain shoppers like myself. Still worth a visit to say you've been.

The claim to be the largest department store in the world may be true - it sure is big. Go to the Visitor Center and collect your discount card. It gives 10% discount on most purchases, including sale items, but also check for discount deals on the Macy's website, that might be better than 10%. We were purchasing some men's... More

No matter what time of year, I love this place. This time special, to take my daughter through. So many floors, so many things, so much history just in the building itself. It will be forever a NYC family tradition to visit!

Calling Macy's New York City "just a shop" is like saying Harrod's London is just a little place to have afternoon tea. What makes Macy's so special is that it has something for every price range. The sales are great and it has a beautiful restaurant on the 6th floor, Stella 34 Trattoria. Can you find same else where? Absolutely.... More

I should point out I hate shopping (it's one of the internet's best uses) before visiting the US loads of ppl had told me that shopping was much cheaper than at home in UK. So I decided to bite the bullet and visit. It was hell, full of stuff I didn't need or even really desire. Didn't think the prices... More

I wasn't all that impressed with Macy's, it was just a big department store, and all the clothes I was interested in I could get cheaper in the brand shops themselves, which were also all in New York. The wooden escalator is cool, and you can get 10% off as an international visitor if you take your passport to the... More
