What's in your shopping cart?

How Did Macy's Get Its Start?
1844. The son of a Nantucket shopkeeper, R.H. Macy, opened his own needle and thread store in Boston. That shop didn't work out... But Macy persevered.
1858. Macy gave it a go in New York City opening up what was called a "fancy shop". It opened in the low rent district on 14th and 6th avenue.
And well, we know that so much more has happened since then. Watch the video for a video history.
