Tourist trap, but great if you live here.

I do not understand why so many tourists insist on making this store a must-see when they are in town. I live here and avoid it like the plague. It is usually crowded, dirty and noisy. The clothes in the men's department look like their for old men, gang members, or children's TV presenters. The women's department is either very overpriced, bedazzled, or looks like it came from a Chadwick's catalog. The only reason I gave a 3 is when they have a sale in the furniture department it is good value for money. For clothes, take your hard earned money to Lord&Taylor, Saks, Barneys...

Worst store in Manhattan

The thing I find the most amusing at Macy's are the signs above the cash register's "Customer Service", everytime I walk into that store I swear I will never go back. There is never anyone to help you, and it's a mess. I've tried many times to give it another chance, since it's convient to where I work, but everytime I do I leave empty handed and telling myself I will never go back.

bad customer review

Just a head's up to everyone especially in 34 st who has plans to buy stuff with warranty from Macy's and in my case a mattress , never buy a mattress from them, they will always find a way to void your warranty and they never advise you at the beginning on how it works , My mattress is literally broken after 5 years and it wasn't a cheap mattress but a very expensive twin one. So now I have to spend again another 700$ to buy new mattress and definitely not from Macy's. Make sure you read their policy before buying in case you really need to buy from them .

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
