Macy's Historic Tour

The famous retailer, Macy’s, is not only the largest department store in America, but holds a story full of history, entrepreneurship and inventive retail. On this one-hour tour you will receive firsthand views of the flagship store in Herald Square, a true New York City icon. Built in 1902, this store represented one of the most major milestones in the company’s evolution. You will gain deep insight into the illustrious history of Macy’s—from its modest roots in a 14th Street emporium founded by R.H. Macy’s in 1858 to the present-day, 800+ store empire that employs 172,500 people.

Occupying an entire block, the Herald Square Historical Landmark store is one of the largest in the world with 11 levels of merchandise. The tour is full of architectural highlights like the original wooden escalators and the memorial entrance on 34th Street Isidor and Ida Straus who took over for the founding Macy family, but later perished on the Titanic.

You’ll also learn of Macy’s unique and innovative merchandising and marketing techniques which have revolutionized the retail industry. Macy’s was the first store to institute a one-price system which put bargaining to an end and the first to offer money-back guarantees. The unique merchandising techniques continue through today and you will get the inside scoop as you tour this remarkable flagship store.

You know of Macy’s famous Thanksgiving Day Parade, quality products, unbeatable sales and elaborate Christmas displays. Now experience the magic of Macy’s with firsthand views and tales of this retail giant.
