Macy’s Herald Square is New York City’s most iconic department store, welcoming more than 20 million visitors from around the world each year. The world-famous flagship is a retail institution known for its fashion and epic events -- most notably the Annual Macy’s Flower Show ®; Macy's 4th of July Fireworks ® and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade ®. Built in 1902, the “World’s Largest Store” currently houses more than 1 million square-feet of retail space. In 2011, Macy’s Inc. announced that the store will increase its selling space to 1.2 million square-feet following an extensive four-year, 400 million dollar renovation. The renovation will transform the store into one of the most technologically advanced, fashion-forward and exciting destinations in the world with new designer departments, epicurean experiences and multi-level luxury shops.
