Plenty of celebrities – among them Charice Pempengco, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Eva Mendes, Jessica Simpson, Martha Stewart, Tommy Hilfiger, Clinton Kelly, Kenneth Cole, Ming Tsai, Tyler Florence and Todd English have turned out to New York’s Gotham Hall for cake and fireworks to celebrate 150 years of iconic US retailer Macy’s.
Even the Empire State Building got in on the act, being lit red in honor of its historical neighbor, while the store’s 34th Street homeland is being dubbed “R H Macy Way” for the day to commemorate the retailer’s founding father.
“It’s amazing to consider that Macy’s was doing business before many great brands like General Electric, Coca Cola and Ford Motor Company were even born,” Terry J Lundgren, Macy’s Inc’s chairman, president and ceo tells The Daily. “The longevity of the Macy’s brand, its place in American culture, and its legacy of serving customers for five generations are extraordinary.”
Macy’s, the largest retail brand of Macy’s, Inc., delivers fashion and affordable luxury to customers at more than 800 locations in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. Offering distinctive assortments including exclusive fashion and home brands, Macy’s stores are operated by four regionally based retail divisions – Macy’s East, Macy’s Florida, Macy’s Central, and Macy’s West – and an online store at macys.com.
