  • If you'd enjoy the history of the Marshall Field's building and some of the original ceiling decor, then by all means, stop into Macy's. However, we were underwhelmed by the common separated areas...  more »
  • Although I generally despise department stores (can never find what I want, higher prices, hate the giant perfume section that makes my nose burn, lack of access to sales staff, etc) we decided to...  more »
  • I go to State Street Macys every year to see the holidays windows. To say they were underwhelming this year is being polite. It really was a waste of time. They need to make them great or skip all...  more »

  • The Best Macy's of all, I think. I've been others in NY, Boston, Buffalo...even in Guam. But this is the BEST. Plenty of materials, and very kind attendants. To all men, Go to the suit section on the second floor and get Leslie's help. She'll take care of everything. Thank you, Leslie :)
  • I ordered clothes online that I loved but didn't fit. I went to their return desk and was in and out in 5 minutes. But really I just love being there, getting a book from Barbara's Bookstore, browsing around, getting fitted for a bra by a knowledgeable sales woman, finding a lovely pair of pajamas, and then getting a little bag of candy downstairs. It's a great place still. I hope people will stop shopping at mega-online places and get back to the service of great department stores. Macy's is great and I'd hate for it to be gone.
  • They have huge selections to choose from and the staff were very helpful & friendly. The location is easily accessible by public transportation. The prices might be a bit expensive but they have good deals with their very own credit cards and occasional sales. I highly recommend this place if you want buy something, whether you already have something in mind or if you haven't decided exactly what to get. They have so many options to choose from.
  • Not native to Chicago, and we honestly felt like we had to walk 5 miles and in circles just to find what we were looking for. Ended up getting some Levi's for a good price and a few other things, also on sale. Nice that there is a Lenscrafters in house as well.
  • Good place to shop in Chicago. Multiple floors with escalator and elevator access and a lot of brands to choose between. There is something for everyone here. The place is also convenient as there are restrooms on each floor. Happy shopping!
