With the construction of the shoe floor, Macy’s Herald Square enters the first phase of a renovation project that will continue through November 2012 bringing dramatic changes to the Main Floor, Mezzanine and Second Levels, and all Broadway entrances. Announced in November 2011, the renovation will be one of the biggest retail remodels ever with the Manhattan flagship ultimately undergoing a total top-to-bottom transformation. The multi-year, multi-million dollar ($400 million) renovation project will reconfigure the legendary landmark through architectural and technological enhancements adding an extra 100,000 square feet of selling space. Increasing its retail space to 1.2 million square feet, the store will bring in new departments, dining destinations and multi-level shops offering the world’s leading luxury brands, as well as establishing the World’s Largest Shoe Floor for a unique shopping experience found only at the World’s Largest Store.
