It was announced today that Macy’s Herald Square flagship store in New York will be getting a $400 million revamp. The renovation will begin early spring 2012 and is expected to take four years to complete. 100,000 square feet of additional selling space will be added to the store, which already takes up an entire city block. All ten-and-a-half levels will be affected, as well as the majority of the departments.
Some of the new changes include adding 300 more dressing rooms, installing interactive store directories and live video feeds of nationwide Macy’s events, and expanding the women’s shoe department.
A brew pub will be added, as well as a table-service restaurant on the sixth floor that will provide its diners with an impressive view of the Empire State Building and Midtown Manhattan. Though there will be a great deal of restoration and remodeling, the historical integrity of certain aspects of the store, like the wooden escalators, will be preserved.

A new feature has been added to FMDS Daily, Splurge vs. Steal! This week’s Splurge vs. Steal are two necklaces that are both beautiful. The Ippolita ‘Mini Lollipop’ Turquoise Long Strand Necklace, Nordstrom $595, is the Pièce de résistance to an outfit.
Like most people, if you cannot afford the five-hundred dollar price tag there’s always the next option from Macys. A Monet Necklace ($58) that looks just as lovely and will bring the same wow factor to any outfit.
Getting either necklace would be a win and great buy!
Following in the footsteps of H&M, Target, and J.C Penney, Macy’s is about to sell its first designer collaboration in their stores. The first collection will be designed by Kinder Aggugini, a designer who is a rising star in London, yet relatively unknown to the U.S. (his designs can only be found in New York and Ikram in Chicago). Aggugini was attracted to Macy’s idea of a line that looked off the runway but was still affordable.
The collection, debuting in February, will be priced between $50 and $300 and sold in 250 Macy’s stores. Aggugini’s designs are described as a marriage between Chanel and Sid Vicious, and the collection will include pieces such as silk shorts, cardigans, sleek military jackets, tailored leather jackets, and much more. “The idea is to give it a chic look that feels sexy and edgy, and best of all, you can afford it.” says Aggugini.
