Spending $400 million on a makeover is something only an established store with a worldwide brand should attempt — but is it worth it if you’re just turning it into yet another Apple-esque space? Macy’s is the next to go for the shiny, sleek and super-white Apple look at its famous flagship store in New York City, but some traditionalists say in this case, change isn’t good.
Rose Syracuse went to work at Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square when she was nineteen years old, and she stayed there until she retired. That’s unusual enough to us today, but that’s before you learn how long she worked there. She began work at the department store in 1939. She retired earlier this week at age 92 after a 73-year career behind the scenes.
Macy’s is suing JCPenney again over Martha Stewarts products, even though it already won a preliminary injunction against its rival to stop selling her stuff at Penney’s. This suit is trying to cast that injunction even wider and have JCPenney hand over some dough for daring to get all up in Macy’s business.
