Known as “America’s Largest Department Store”, this over two million square foot shopping complex sits on an entire city block and holds 10.5 floors of retail fun. This destination will allow your group to unwind with a little (or a lot) of iconic NYC shopping, plus you will have the bonus of learning about and seeing for yourself all the amazing history and architecture associated with the building (request a guided walking group tour).
Once you see the huge iconic Macy’s shopping bag on Herald Square you know you’re in for a treat, with hundreds of designer brands and products inside waiting to be explored. Reaching coast to coast with over 740 stores, Macy’s offers a lot more than just Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren brand clothing. This complex, in particular, offers extra educational programs such as cooking tutorials and beauty and fashion seminars daily, as well as more places to eat and relax than you can count, or keep track of.
Registered as a National Historic Landmark in 1978, Macy’s Herald Square offers a one-hour ‘fun, fast, and fact-filled’ group tour of the building including its history, marketing concepts, merchandising, and visual techniques. Other various themed tours are available periodically, such as the Breakfast Fashion Show or any of their famous holiday-themed events. If your group happens to be here around Christmastime, be sure to visit the iconic Macy’s Santaland, where the famous mall Santa scene in Miracle on 34th Street was filmed. Besides being involved in the community with events such as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, this stop on your New York tour will be sure to make you and your group feel a sense of New York community like never before.
