What's in your shopping cart?
From introducing 'novelties' such as colored bath towels to a certain parade you might watch on Thanksgiving, it's hard to imagine a holiday season without that omnipresent red star.
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.
Macy's is set to report fiscal second-quarter earnings for 2019 before the bell on Wednesday, August 14.
