Macy’s is one of the most shopped department stores in the country. It used to be number one clothing retailer in the United States at some point, that is until Amazon started taking the lead a couple of years back. But even so, the retailer maintains a strong competition.
Macy’s was forced to close up to hundreds of brick-and-mortar locations in the years since online retailing has gotten more and more popular, so obviously it’s been affected by online vendors, but it’s unlikely that Macy’s will be disappearing anywhere anytime soon, except for those locations where it’s closing of course.
However, the plan is for Macy’s to shift even more towards the online, so the company is here to stay. As long as the Internet will hold, so will Macy’s that has a long-standing heritage after all. The company goes back to 1858 and has been a popular department store for many years.
Here are five reasons why people shop at Macy’s
- It’s built a reputation for offering designer brands and bargains.
- It provides discounts regularly for clearance and sale items including exclusive brands.
- It carries iconic American brands.
- It’s one of the best places in the country to shop for perfume.
- It has everything.
Pretty much true: Macy’s carries furniture, it carries shoes and clothing, and it sells fragrances, jewelry, and makeup, just about everything you can buy.
Since Valentine’s Day is approaching and Macy’s is got them all, this makes it an ideal shopping location, not to mention also because it gives people the opportunity to buy popular gifts with real discounts every day. And the perfect gift for your Valentine’s could be any one of these:
Jewelry – because most women love jewelry
It doesn’t have to be a piece of fine jewelry. We all know that sells up to hundreds, possibly thousands of dollars, but Macy’s carries such a loaded selection that it is practically impossible not to find something even on a budget. Two types of jewelry usually found at Macy’s on an everyday basis with special prices:
Diamond earrings in sterling silver and 14k gold at a special $59 price
Cultured freshwater pearls 36-inch endless strand at a special $49 price
Watches – because women and men wear them
You can give women jewelry or cosmetics, and most women will probably be happy with their gift. But you can’t buy men cosmetics, and some men don’t wear jewelry. But watches – they can be a terrific gift.
Some men even collect watches or enjoy reading about them, which gives a woman more than one choice. Macy’s doesn’t carry books about watches, but it does sell designer brands men’s watches, like Bulova, Gucci, and Seiko. Prices vary depending on the brand and/or the style, but there are watches available in the clearance and sale section basically every day. Two recommendations:
