There is a wine bar inside the Macy’s! I think that is awesome! However it closed st 5:00pm on Christmas Eve. There was so many shoppers that They should have and could have stayed open longer!

Always find something for everyone at Macy's. Sales and specials very good. A bit hectic with the closure of Mens department across the street so in process of remodeling.
