Fantastic shop, so many floors, such a big shop actually got lost inside and had to find our way out. Great for shopaholics

I went to Macy's to shop sneakers and some clothes. I would say that the assortment is very good, theinterior is very messy with clothes hanging everywhere. The staff at the shoes department were fine but at the clothes department you had to wait in line for ever and staff was really rude and inefficient. One clerk started complaining about... More

Even for the guys, there is something for everyone in here. Nine floors of stuff. This is just huge, and there is a big billboard on the outside that says this is the largest shop in the world. One side has women, the other has men. Lots of floors to visit.

I went there before and the store was not just a department store. It was a work of art, inside was gorgeous, the ceilings, the mezzanine, the columns, the wooden escalators... It was magical in there. Now it's just a big famous department store where you can get great deals on numerous brands. Shopping is still very good and I... More

If you like to look for the good bargain whatever time for it and energy spend, then you are in the right place. Personally I have found some stuff but not that exciting . Then depend on your expectation, budget and taste. Don't be to high on them but if you are modest regarding them you could find stuff and... More

You know, nobody dresses like the Statue of Liberty any more, so why don't we take her down and update her wardrobe: slacks and a blazer, maybe? No? The Empire State Building looks old-fashioned and dated, so why don't we cover the exterior with an all-glass façade? No? It's the iconic features of these treasures that makes them, well, iconic....

I went for my first time and dropped quite a bit of money, the place is great and worth checking off the checklist, but the staff are very rude, they could care less about helping you. I got yelled at by a staff lady to hurry up in a deserted fitting room, and all others were very rude and insulted... More

Absolutely love this store! Macy's in New York has everything -- including a whole floor of women's plus size designer clothes. I actually bought so much in this store that I also bought a suitcase so that I could take everything home with me!

We shopped here for a few hours and checked-out when the store was closing. We were sent to five different cashiers and they would tell us they were closed, then send us to the next, giving us attitude and making jokes about us in the process. It almost felt like they just wanted to close and did not want our... More

11 stories of shopping. My husband couldn't believe I wanted to go to Macys when I can shop at Macys at home. I spent a couple of hours there and only went on 2 floors. Excellent variety.
