Originally known as Wananmaker Dept Store, after the founder, it is now a Macy's Dept Store and quite stunning. Built in 1902, it was the 1st dept store in Philly and one of the 1st in the U.S. It still plays music a few times a day from it's beautiful "St Louis World Fair Pipe Organ" that sits in the...

This is the old Wanamaker building with the huge organ and holiday light show. It is right across the street from City hall. It will look familiar when you see it from all the movies it has been in.

This was a weird Macy's experience as I was in there right before a major holiday and I thought it would be easy to pick up a shirt on sale as the one I had was stained and I needed a dress shirt quickly. The sale shirts were far and few in-between. The best thing I could say is that... More

Now Macy's formerly Wanamakers one of the first if not THE first department stores in the U.S. Beautiful building prominently situated next to City Hall. Definitely worth the trip if not for the building for the innumerable sales Macy's is always having.

As a child I was taken to Wanamaker's Department store to see the statue of the eagle and hear the organ. Returning as an adult, it was exciting to see the eagle(Philadelphians say "Meet you at the eagle") and hear an organ concert on this historic organ. Fun to shop but a bonus to see the elegant store and hear... More
