Macy's History

Macy’s was founded in 1858 in New York City by Rowland Macy.  Originally a dry goods retail shop on 6th Ave, the store was located far north of most existing dry good stores.

In 1875, Macy took on 2 partners (Robert Valentine and Abiel La Forge) .  All 3 partners died by 1879.

In 1895, the Macy family sold the business to the Straus brothers.

In 1902, the flagship store was moved to Herald Square, where it remains today.

In 1986, a leveraged buyout of the company was led by CEO Edward Finkelstein.  The company filed for bankruptcy in 1992.

In 1994, the company merged with Federated Department Stores.

In 2008, Macy’s celebrated its 150th birthday.

The company currently operates over 850 stores in the US.  The Macy’s corporate office is located in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I complained to you about your decision to terminate your relationship with Mr Trump. You stated the comments made by Mr Trump violated Macy’s values. I also now find out that Macy donates to Planned Parenthood. Recently released videos show that PP now sells the dismembered body parts of aborted babies for profit. Does any of this activity go against Macy’s values?

Call anytime,

As a nonlipstick wearing baby boomer customer and a woman who at a millenial age began shopping with Field’s and continued with Macy’s, I can tell you that your financial issue is not make-up or technology. It is product and service.

You have restructured your stores to look like the cracker aisles of supermarkets – one brand of cracker in variety flavors lines 2/3 of the shelves; what happened to other lines?

As a tech savvy adult, my last on-line purchase with you was a horrific indication of your lack of service. I ordered two items to wear on vacation and after purchasing both (checked the delivery date) was later emailed that one product would now not arrive until I was on vacation. I called to cancel it as I did not want it sitting on my doorstep. The run-around I got was beyond exasperation. I immediately requested a manager who could resolve the issue and had to explain myself to Jane (cut me off at the 15 minute mark by putting me on permanent hold), Olivia (told me she’d take care of it and call me back – never did), another person who sent me to Josephina who sent me to Crystal who after 26 minutes sent me to Michelle who still would not connect me to a manager. After 35 minutes of conversation with her and me continuing to request a manager (and over 3 hours on the phone over a two day period), she told me the item was not in stock any more and wouldn’t be shipped. That was a stunning lie! Your rep training program needs an ethical component as well as a customer service component. Jane had already told me the product was in shipping. The item was delivered while I was on vacation.

The items were all returned to you – after I hunted down a store clerk (very nice but working 3 departments at the same time). I repurchased them on Amazon.

As I said, product and service. And now, politics?!!! You are losing more than the millenials. You are losing the boomers, their children and their grandchildren. And now you are losing all those who would defend free speech. What once was a lovely experience and a right of passage is dead. Shame on you for destroying that!

Mr. Lundgren, what an ignorant decision you made! Have cut up our Macy’s card and have returned a recent purchase from my local Macy’s. We will not be spending any more of our hard earned money at any of your stores! We can buy Donald Trumps clothes elsewhere. Wonder if the illegals your supporting will make you as profitable as law abiding Americans……..Huge mistake!

I am extremely upset that you chose to cancel Donald Trumps line as a reult of his exercising his First Amendment right. A punishing and horrible way to limit free speech. Had the Trump line failed to sell, as a result of his statements, i i might understand pulling his line. That would be seen as an economic response. But you made a judgement that suppresses free speech. How horrible! I will shop elsewhere.
Sincerely,
M. Schmitz

I wish to add my family’s name to the list of folks who wont be shopping at your stores anymore. Your assinine decision to place political correctness above running a retail store drove my decision. CEO. your store aint that great for you to make such a stupid mistake. Walmare, target, and Kmart is kicking your ass as it is. In the few times that I have visited a Macy’s there were not many Mexicans there. So, why are they so important? More important than the hardworking Americans who pay taxes? Big mistake, big consequences.

I am an individual who believes in personal conviction, veracity and in the dictate of legal immigration. All legal immigrants shall be given the right to pursue happiness as a US citizen provided they comply with the laws of this nation and work to contribute to the economic and social advancement of our society and posterity. The federal, state and local government’s wanton contempt and disregard for our current immigration laws and protocol is reprehensible. Policies that disregard the apprehension and deportation of illegal aliens who commit crimes or work illegally while entering and residing in this country respectively should be disdained. Donald Trump’s candid remarks were spoken with passion, clarity and truth. The escalating problem of illegal immigration continues to undermine the sanctity of the constitution; the sovereignty of this Country and the will of the people.

I have strong convictions when it involves holding those accountable for making egregious, deleterious statements that focus on distorting or misinterpreting fact to merely leverage populism; or, cater to a frivolous political correctness guided only by zealous emotion. Thus, no company, under any circumstances, should promote, advocate or encourage the legitimacy of such policies that degrade or cede our nation’s sovereignty or security.

Mr. Lundgren, Macy’s response to the Media’s misleading and vilified interpretation of Donald’s Trump statements specific to the antithetical consequences of illegal immigration are specious. Certainly, you understand that under these circumstances Macy’s must be held accountable for making a misguided, ad hoc decision that ends your relationship with Donald Trump. Consequently, I will cease to patronize Macy’s and encourage others to do the same. The loss of my business along with many others will hopefully encourage you as well as Macy’s to rethink your continued support for the countervailing, ideologically-driven policies that seek to undermine our Nation’s laws; compromise America’s safety, and (above all) diminish Constitutional observance.

Sincerely,
A former Customer

My entire family has decided to terminate our shopping relationship with Macy’s, ever since their CEO has decided to focus his attention on silencing American freedom-of-speech instead of his retailing business.

It is a sad day when corporate bigwigs–like so many Hollywood’s actors–think they have the right to dictate to hard-working, tax-paying citizens what they can or can not do, what they can or can not say … or believe. So Mr. Terry Lundgren: per my American right of freedom of shopping, you can stick your retail where the sun don’t shine. Forever!

Dear Mr. Lungren:
It is with deep regret that I have to inform you I will no longer be shopping at Macy’s. I have informed my relatives and friends that in my opinion your company no longer stands for the Constitution and our First Amendment rights. I will continue to campaign that all good Americans should abandon shopping at your store for this reason. I have always shopped at your store first because I saw it as American through and through. Your resent treatment of Mr. Donald Trump is a glaring example telling me and others that your bottom line, money, counts.
Make no mistake I am no true blue supporter of Mr. Trump, but I am a true supporter of the Constitution of the United States. The first Amendment guarantees the right to speak. The action of Macy’s to cut Mr. Trump from your store was a big mistake. Look at the Internet, he spoke the truth, Miss Kate Steinle and over 250 more Americans have been murdered at the hands of the illegal immigrants in this country. His statements about the drug traffic iare also true. Check the news his life has been threatened by the Cartel.
Your company is watching the bottom line, if enough Americans boycott your store you might have to close more stores next year. Remember Americans support your bottom line not the illegals they shop in the dollar stores. For the record I have been a client since 1980 and have spent thousands of dollars in your store no more.

Dear Chairman & CEO Terry Lundgren:

It has come to my attention that Macy’s has dropped the merchandising deal it has had in place with Donald Trump. I am not necessarily a fan of Donald Trump per se. However I am MUCH LESS a fan of companies led by gutless leadership that cowers to bullies fed by the time given to them by the LIBERAL RACE BAITING media. Donald Trump is an America icon in business and may soon be legitimate in politics as well. That remains to be seen. What does not remain to be seen are companies that capitulate to liberal interest groups without understanding that the bullies DO NOT represent the majority of the buying public.

I am Chairman of the largest County Republican Party in the State of Missouri. Our county in 4 years has moved from fully establishment to 80% tea party (50% libertarian) and 20% establishment. What has happened in our county is happening all over this country. We are tired of being pushed around by bullies and weak politicians and a new generation is coming up through the ranks. We do not take kindly to bullying whether it over illegals taking our legal immigrants jobs or whether its bullying people over what flag they wave. FREE SPEECH is still a right in this country.

Do you not see the crowds Donald Trump is gathering? I hope they are cutting up their Macy’s cards. I don’t have one or I would do so as well. I do shop there from time to time, but will not in the future unless you get some intestinal fortitude and stand up for what is right. It is time for Macy’s to get a clue and reverse the Trump merchandise deal – or you will suffer the consequences from the real public. Macy’s has cowered to bullies and you should be ashamed to be so GUTLESS.

Dear Macy’s executive leadership team in particular Mr. Lundgren ~

I am absolutely disgusted with your recent PC/left wing BS decision to remove any association with Donald Trump. I may not support him or believe everything he says is truthful, but for you to sink so low and jump ship out of fear is cowardly. I have never believed in boycotting, but have now HAD IT with the liberal agenda.

I will no longer shop at any of your stores, or your website and will spend my money elsewhere.

You are pathetic! looking to find your email address I came across your executive team. Funny….not that it matters as I don’t believe in affirmative action as i find it racist in itself, but I don’t see one minority executive that is part of your team.

Funny, as well as somewhat ironic, don’t you think?

Dear Mr. Lundgren,
As long-time, loyal Macy’s customers, it is with no small amount of regret that I have been compelled to destroy our Macy’s card, and close our accounts with your firm.
Your company has made a serious error in judgement in regards to their feeble and unjust attempt to silence Mr. Donald Trump. The right to free speech applies to every person who lives under the protection of our great Constitution. Your decision to use these bullying tactics to silence decent, honest, conservative Americans, like Mr. Trump, is unforgivable, immoral, and extremely un-American. I can only asume that you and your company only want to deal with people who are liberal, and politically correct. Therefore, I feel sure that you do not want the business of people who believe as my wife and myself. Therefore, my longtime relationship with Macy’s has come to a sad, unnecessary end due to your company’s lack of belief in a person’s freedom of speech.
I am convinced that you, Macy’s, and the people responsible for your cowardly, punitive action, will regret the stance you have taken for many years to come. You have my sympathy!

I did not like that Donald Trump was dropped from Macy’s I do not believe in all of his political views, but what I do believe is that he has the right to Freedom Of Speech.
Macy’s does not have the right to silence him. Mr. Lundgren has overstepped his boundaries by trying to intimidate Mr. Trump. I have been a Macy’s shopper for years, but I will not be shopping at Macy’s anymore. Mr. Trump has the courage to stand up for Americans and not be controlled by people like Mr. Lundgren who has no backbone to stand up for our freedom. I defend Mr. Trump for speaking out in defense of Americans. Mr. Lundgren stick with retail and stop trying to control Freedom of Speech.

Either you are for protecting innocent US citizens from illegal alien criminals (illegal immigrants that commit heinous crimes upon legal residents and citizens), or you are against it.

You have spoken. Your priority is to protect the alien criminals at the cost of crimes against citizens in the name of political correctness, by breaking ties with the one and only politician that has spoken the truth about what’s really happening. Really. You should do your own independent research (not the NY times, BTW); actual research of what’s really going on…and why.

Thank goodness for competition. Never buying a product from you again is no inconvenience to me, since you have plenty of competitors whom have not taken such a preposterous position as you have.

Just shameful. You should be hanging your heads in your hands with shame and embarrassment. I can bet you’re not, because you’re more motivated by political correctness than protecting the lives of legal residents and citizens against ILLEGAL aliens. (Please note that when I’m referencing “legal residents,” I’m speaking about LEGAL immigrants, not ILLEGAL aliens.)

It took the murder of Kathyrn Steinle to put a face on what’s been going on and happening to tens-hundreds of thousands of citizens by illegal aliens. Not that they’re all murdered, but they are heinous crimes none-the-less, whether a gang killing, drug related crime, getting hit by a drunk illegal alien driver, raped by an illegal alien, or a whole plethora of other crimes, none of which would have happened if the illegal criminal alien was not in the country. In Texas alone, there have been more than 600,000 crimes by illegal aliens *in just one state* since Obama has been president (or there-about). Research it. If you really have any heart whatsoever, you will reverse your ridiculous (incredulous) position and apologize for your politically “correct” stance. Again, just shameful.

Mr. Lundgren,
Due to the ease in which you fold to a political agenda, I have cut up my Macys card and will no longer be visiting your store, even if it’s to walk through to enter a Mall. This is not necessarily a letter in support of Mr. Trump, as I would be wiping Macys off my list of preferred stores regardless of who it was to which you turned your back on because you might lose customers. A leader should have integrity, being able to stand tall against ANY push to conform by threatening financial loss. You have shown that your pocket weighs more than your conscience – or is it that you lack a conscience? It will be interesting to watch you run scared more and more as the pressure continues for you to conform to an agenda. And when they finally come for you and there is no one left to stand by YOUR side, I shall raise my cup in celebration of your comeuppance!

Sincerely,
Dale Klein

I don’t wish to associate with a company that cowers under political correctness– you don’t represent or serve me or other “real” Americans. I am not a fan of Donald Trump–he is a crass man with a lot of money, but he speaks the truth. In your statements you refer to the intruders as, “immigrants.” No sir, they are illegals. We like LEGAL immigrants, not the current influx of illegals who are straining our finances, bringing diseases and crime into our country.

I have enjoyed shopping at Macy’s for years now, since it replaced Marshall Field’s here in the Chicago area. But no longer will I shop at Macy’s.

We live in a country that USED to allow FREE SPEECH. Now that is being changed by businesses who attempt to control our right to free speech through bullying tactics. Mr. Trump spoke the TRUTH when saying a number of Mexicans coming into our country in recent years are not upright people with good intentions to live honorably. He also said that, yes, there were some good people, along with the bad people, coming in from Mexico. But even if I don’t like the way he said it, I thought we lived in a country with free speech. It is alarming how businesses are trying to silence people.

I am so disappointed in Macy’s for dropping the Trump line of clothes. My family will not shop at Macy’s ever again. Nordstroms and Carson Pirie Scott are wonderful department stores in this area. They will receive my family’s business from now on. I am spreading the word to others as well. Farewell to Macy’s.

Good Morning,

I went to Macy’s in Fort Worth yesterday to purchase some shoes. The sales person was very helpful and kind. When I went to pay out I tried to use a Macy’s gift card my grandmother had given me for a birthday a few years back. You see my grandparents and parents are avid Macy’s shoppers. So I assume that is why she gifted me a gift card to your store. I however do not shop there frequently. I had a gift card that I found in an old purse and decided I would go use it. It was for 50 after all. When I tried to use it for my shoes, the lady said it must have expired because it wasn’t working, and that sometimes when you purchase Macy’s gift cards from an outside vendor that happens. Well I had just found the gift card and read the pamphlet it came in and it stated that they do not expire. I called to verify the amount and it was indeed correct and 50 dollars. I was transferred to Macy’s customer service, and they informed that they could indeed see the amount and that the card had not been used but that there was a hold on the account and they would not be able to release it without proof of purchase and that it was purchased in 2012. All I needed to do was run into the store that “I” bought it from, use the same credit card and have them print a receipt and they would re-activate it. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?????? DO YOU KNOW HOW LUDRICOUS THAT SOUNDS!! FIRST OF ALL IT IS A ” GIFT” CARD, WHICH MEANS IT WAS A GIFT AND I DON ‘T HAVE THE PROOF OF PURCHASE….. SECONDLY IT WAS FROM 2012 WHO HAS RECIEPTS FROM 3 YEARS AGO. I ASSURE YOU, YOU DO NOT! THIRD, CREDIT CARDS CHANGE ALL THE TIME, EXPIRE, ARE COMPRIMISED AND YOUR FORCED TO CHANGE THEM. NONE OF WHAT YOU EXPECT FROM IS SIMPLE. MY GRANDMOTHER IS NOT WELL AND IS 88 YEARS OLD AND THEY JUST WANTED ME TO CALL HER AND HAVE HER FIGURE IT OUT. I HAVE NEVER BEEN TREATED SO RUDLEY AND HAD SUCH POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE OVER THE PHONE. I WAS TRANSFERED TO A SPECIALIST, THEN A SUPERVISOR, THEN A MANAGER, AFTER I ASKED FOR A MANAGER FROM THE GET GO. Even your employee behind the counter advised me to keep calling you, advised that she would be on the floor if she had to throw ten dollars in the trash, and I’m having to throw away 50!! If you can’t except a card because it expires that makes more sense than putting a hold in it until proof of purchase is found! That is crazy, you wasted my grandmothers money, my gift card, and you will lose ALL of my family and friends business after this email goes out. 50 dollars is nothing to Macy’s but was a lot to me and the way your staff addressed the issue and the way Macys chose to handle and it walk away from the issue saying there hands were tied, well that is enough for me to be DONE! Not let me see how we can help, or we could put you in touch with. ZERO EFFORT WAS MADE! AND NOW I HAVE TO THROW 50 DOLLARS AWAY , KNOWING IT’S ON THE CARD, YOU JUST CHOSE NOT TO EXCEPT IT. YOU SURE DIDN’T HAVE A PROBLEM TAKING MY GRANDMOTHERS MONEY TO PURCHASE IT. AND IF YOU HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THE OUTSIDE VENDOR POLICIES MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T SELL GIFT CARDS TO THEM. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO INSULTED, EMBARRASED AND TREATED SO POORLY AT ANY DEPARTMENT STORE.

I am sorry Macy’s has joined the ‘politically correct’ movement in this country. We just celebrated our right to free speech July 4, and whether you agree with Donald Trump or not, he had every right to issue the comments he made. He was not speaking of all Mexicans – he was speaking of illegal immigrants – and our woefully inadequate enforcement of current immigration laws and the porous border that politicians fail to address. I will no longer be shopping at Macy’s.

Dear Mr. Lundgren,

It is very disconcerting to hear of your decision to sever ties with Donald Trump over his recent comment on illegal immigrants. Should you choose to educate yourself on the topic there is factual data available from a variety of sources. Mr. Trump is a smart man with connections. No doubt he did his homework before stepping into dialogue on the subject of immigration.

However, I am more concerned about your cowering to the PC agenda, which at its roots is a Marxist ideology taken to the marketplace. As I write, our nation still has a working constitution and I would like to remind you of the First Amendment: which covers free speech. A quote attributed to Voltaire: I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend your right to say it.

The consequences of your decision will be evident at the next shareholders meeting when you must explain your decision to break ties with a leading brand for reasons of political correctness because, and I’ll use the current buzz words, “inclusiveness and diversity and all…” Macy’s stock will tumble for sure as millions of people – hard working Americans fed up with the track this country has been on – choose to buy elsewhere.

I prefer to think of it as a “BUYCOTT” rather than “BOYCOTT.” A Buycott means I will BUY from businesses that represent my values. Clearly, this will not be at companies that do not approve of the First Amendment such as Macy’s.

It is hoped that this experience will provide growth opportunities for you and whomever you had counseling you on this horrific decision.

With money to spend and friends to influence,
Dyan

I am tired of paying the way for a lot of illegals and was thrilled to hear Donald Trump make the statements he did. He is not afraid to say what needs to be said. It is time for our government to stand up for its own people, quit being so politically correct, and stop trying to figure out ways to make illegals more comfortable here.
I will no longer shop at Macys because I think they are supposed to be selling merchandise….not making political statements. Or would they like to foot the bill for all the costs associated with illegals? It would probably make Mr. Lundgren rethink his comments. It seems that some businesses want to make a buck at the expense of others.

If people like Sean Combs and Jay Zee reflect your views but a decent,non criminal honest petson like Donald Trump does not then I nor my family nor anyone I know wants to deal with your store be cause YOU do not reflect OUR views and beliefs with the rude criminal elements that you choose to align with. Macys would have been better off to avoid the “P.C.” game that everyone seems to want to play and just stayed with the retail bussiness. Its a game that destroys the player because no matter what you choose SOMEONE is going to be offended..you lose.

My parents were legal immigrants. The father of my children was a legal immigrant. I shop at Macy’s all the time, both online and in the dept. store. I purchase everything from housewares to women’s and children’s clothing to holiday and wedding gifts. It has always been my favorite place to shop. I am saddened to say that I cannot shop at your store any longer. I am NOT a fan of Donald Trump. I never have been. But I am disheartened to learn that Macy’s has joined that particular group in left wing politics who have all gone to the same School of Correct Thought and who fail to cherish our freedom of speech.
I may not agree with what Trump says. But I defend his right to say it.

To CEO Lundgren and his cronies: Donald Trump has the courage to speak the truth, something you lack. Try defending your country instead of disguising yourself as a person of moral character. Big business is rapidly destroying this great country you phony.
