excellent quality bedbath
From a "Miracle on 34th Street" to malls in the 'burbs, this is middle-class America's own department store..
In 1857, R.H. Macy opened his eponymous dry goods store in New York City. The tally of his first day's receipts: $11.06. These days, under the aegis of Federated Department stores, Macy's anchors malls coast to coast, tallying millions in yearly sales.
Macy's is every shopper's department store, located along the retail spectrum between Sears and Nordstrom. Crowded displays boast second-tier labels: Lauren and Polo by Ralph Lauren, Reaction by Kenneth Cole, Allen by ABS. The shoe department features many upscale selections: Via Spiga, DKNY and Martinez Valero for the ladies and Cole Haan, Skechers and basic Bass loafers for the fellas. Otherwise, rely on staples: Wamsutta sheets, Royal Velvet towels, Clinique cosmetics, Gold-Toe socks and Carter's for kids.
Bigstore shopping. When I lived in Davis, I would take the bus into downtown Sacramento just to go to Macy's. You would have too if the biggest department store you could visit locally was the JC Penney catalog shop 10 miles away. Okay maybe I exaggerated a little...it was more like 5 miles. But in LA...the land of new and shiny...Macy's is a little passe. You can get better deals on clothing at JC Penney...excellent quality bed/bath linens at Target...and true foodies are going to get their kitchen gadgets at William-Sonoma or Sur le Table. Macy's is just another run-of-the-mill department store. This location, being a former Broadway still has the dark and dingy look of the old store...despite attempts to brighten it up. Again, when I'm at the mall...I'll browse through the store but I rarely buy anything here.
