    Buy what's on sale and stack the savings on with your Macy's card. You can end up with some very sweet deals. If purchasing luggage, don't hesitate to ask for floor models for an additional 10% off.

    Yes it's Macys, but it' also a really incredible building. They play the pipe organ (worlds largest!) a few times a day. Read a big about the building's history (Google: Wanamakers). Cool stuff.

    Once Wanamaker’s, America’s first “modern day department store” this US Historic Landmark was built in 1876 and still houses the largest operational pipe organ in the world; played at noon each day.

    President Taft was the guest of honor at the dedication of Wanamaker's department store (now Macy’s) on December 30, 1911. A bronze plaque inlaid in the Juniper Street entrance marks the spot.
