    Unfortunately this location is going out of business. Sales are a bit stale, my visit was more because of the landmark status once being Kaufmanns flagship location.

    Skip downtown store for holidays. Kids Santa shop is disappointing and so are the holiday windows - a drunk bear with a boat Ralph Lauren you are out of touch with the Macy's shopper. Ack.

    The store is currently downsizing, so the signs by the elevators with what floors have what are incorrect. Be prepared to wander.
