Random Topics - Macy's

Macy's is a chain of mid to high range American department stores. Its flagship store in Herald Square, New York City has been billed as the "world's largest store" since 1924, although today it ties with London's Harrods in vastness of selling space. The company has designated additional regional flagships in major urban centers and operates a total of 810 U.S. stores (as of September 2008). The company produces the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a well known parade which has been held on the streets of New York City annually since 1924. The company also sponsors the city's annual Fourth of July fireworks display, which began in 1976. Macy's was founded in 1858 by Rowland Hussey Macy.

1 A woman down here got fired from a local Macy's for refusing to let a cross-dressing man use the women's dressing rooms.. Apparently there is a policy (of theirs) that allows a cross-dresser to use any dressing room he or she wants. Is this common now? Do other dept. stores such as Macy's have similar policies? -- Submitted By: () on December 7, 2011, 6:53 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 The store at 34th Street is amazing, but the Macy's in my local mall is another store..a small selection of overpriced merchendise. -- Submitted By: (PrinceJ) on August 1, 2010, 6:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

4 Macy's "Boned the Fish" - no, no, wait...Macy's "Entered the Neighborhood" in 2006 when became a 100% national chain as opposed to being heavily concentrated in select markets only (Texas, Bay Area, New York, etc.) In the past, Macy's was a lot like a Neiman's in terms of style and atmospherics - when you went in, you could have sworn you were in New York City! Now, with the demise of local chains (such as Foley's and Marshall Field's, both of which had Texas stores), I thought Macy's would bring their fashion to every street corner in America (ala Nordstrom)! Nope, they've pretty much become one rung above JCPenney now! This is a huge blow to long-time Macy's fans (My first Macy's visit was over in that lone Dallas store in early 1995; I loved going there, but don't worry, it's still nice inside) as well as historic department store fans (Chicagoans are still mad at the demise of Field's, you know, and I remember the Dallas store, too!) It's time we start a new phrase: "Enter the Neighborhood", where a business reaches its peak and gets really bad (ala JTS)! It's a play on the phrase "There goes the neighborhood", and it refers to the store's downward spiral after this event! Peace. -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 18, 2009, 9:12 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
