Macys 24 Hour a-thon

Macys is going 24 hours starting December 21 in certain locations including the huge Herald Square store in Manhattan.
Now, I am not a big fan of this all night retailing, with stores open till midnight all the time and such.( after all a dear friend had to be in Kohls by 2:30 AM on Black Friday to open the store at 4AM ,which is just crazy).
However, at the holidays everyone needs a little extra shopping time, and in NY , the city of constant buzzing, it makes some sense. Throngs of tourists will love being able to go at any hour. Being able to go out at almost any time is part of New York City.
The people who have to work it , well, thats a different story.

Now the LL Bean suburban locations I have seen going 24 hours, no. Simply no. Seriously.

So here's the info on the Macys stores:

Beginning 7 a.m. Friday, Dec. 21, seven Macy's stores, including the Herald Square flagship, will be open 24 hours daily until 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve. The other six stores are: Kings Plaza in Brooklyn, Cross County shopping center in Yonkers, the Staten Island mall on Staten Island, Roosevelt Field on Long Island, Newport Center in Jersey City and the Willowbrook mall in Wayne, N.J.

Happy Shopping
