Not only do we love great shopping, we also love a great story..........
Macy's was founded by Rowland Hussey Macy in 1851 and the first store was located in Massachusetts to serve the mill industry employees of the area. In 1858, Macy moved to New York City and opened R.H Macy Dry Goods. The store expanded and Macy was a genius at tempting customers inside with clever marketing, window displays and themes like Santa in-store at Christmas. Macy died in 1877 and the family ran the business until it sold to the Straus brothers in 1895.
An interesting fact; the Macy's logo has always included a star in one form or another, which was fashioned after a star-shaped tattoo Macy received during his time working on a Nantucket whaling ship.
In 1902, the New York flagship store moved to Herald Square at 34th Street and Broadway where it has been ever since. Iconic and historic, Macy’s is not only a department store, it’s a story of the American dream and forever part of classic Americana archives with the Oscar winning film Miracle on 34th Street.
