Owner description: From its inception, Macy's Herald Square was a store unlike any other. Over the past 150 years, it has become a true New York City icon. Built in 1902, Macy's Herald Square was the first building to have the modern-day escalator, and it has continued to be a trendsetter. Today, "America's Largest Department Store" covers an entire city block with 11 levels of the latest fashions for you and your home. Macy's offers a full-service Visitor Center on the Mezzanine Level, plus restaurants throughout the store and exciting events almost every day.

This Macy's was by far my favourite shopping place in NYC! There is so much to offer and at reasonable prices but especially with their discounts. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the store is so big it's hard not to get lost inside!! Loved it..

We didn't bring much clothes, especially winter stuff, when we went to US as we were planning to shop anyway. Our first store was Macy's...and boy did we shop. The store was huge. There were lots of bargains and we really did some serious damage. Foreign visitors get extra discount. Sales staff were prompt and friendly.

Jeepers. Like city on it's own. We had a great experience in the store and did lots of shopping. There is a good coverage of sales staff who provided prompt, friendly and efficient service. No waiting at checkout queues. Some of them could have better product knowledge especially in the more "technical" departments like the watches. It was great to... More

Macys at Christmas time was spectacular! The Christmas Windows were amazing, nothing like I have ever seen before. All of the Christmas windows were breathtaking, really something I've always wanted to see. I was not disappointed! Macys itself was actually great to shop at....I even brought my Macys coupons with me & used them!

Fantastic bargains, customer service is unique. Americans know how to treat people, I tried few things and cannot complaint about anything really. Great place to spend some dollars.

We're from Australia where the price of clothing is, well, outrageous, compared to the USA. Macy's has a huge range and the pricing is very very attractive. It doesn't have the range of speciality brands that the Malls do, but for a single stop spot with a huge selection it is the place to go. We had very little winter... More

I arrived in town early one afternoon for a Rangers game so I could run around town just to go to places like Rockefeller Center and Macy’s, to see the window displays, to get in the Christmas mood. I think they really out did themselves this year! The theme this year was the planets and Santa visiting them. It was... More

Went to Macy's 3 or 4 times during our stay. It took over 20 minutes to purchase 2 towels and 20 minutes to try on and purchase a pair of shoes! Love the shop itself - quite retro with the old wooden escalators! Just get more staff on the tills to take your money!
