Macy's Hosts Your Holiday After-party


Macy's announced this week that they are going to keep eight of their locations, including the Herald Square flagship store, open at all hours of the day and night from December 21 to Christmas Eve. From the Staten Island Advance:
Shoppers will be greeted with the ongoing sales Macy's has been holding since Black Friday, said spokeswoman Elina Kazan. "The most important thing about being open 24 hours is that it makes shopping convenient to people with different schedules," she said. "This gives everyone a little extra time." Company officials have been planning the shopping marathon for months to ensure there is enough manpower and merchandise.
Everyone is saying this is so nice of Macy's to open the store so everyone, no matter what their time constraints, has a chance to shop. Now, once all the crowds have gone for the day, customers will be able to wade through the dunes of scattered merchandise in peace. What a great Christmas present.
