Coming to this Macy’s is one of my favorite parts about coming to Philadelphia, especially in December when it is decked out for Christmas! They have great deals on the best brands, especially during holiday seasons. One of my favorite stores!!

Although I’m not much into shopping I can say that shop has the best interior I’ve ever seen! In the same time I can share they also provide a very good service to customers.

Steven gave a lovely tour and the organ was incredible. The music moved me to tears. It is a very special piece of Philly history. We had our youngest child who was a little bored, but the tour was quick enough that he was fine.
