Yes, I am aware. But what I said was "Nordstrom or anything above that." As far as department stores I was referring to upscale department stores like Nordstrom, Barneys, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, Saks, etc. Macy's is a mid-scale department store and is on the same level as Dillard's.

LOL Macy's isn't bad at all! It's huge brand! All I am saying is that in the world of department stores it is not on the same level as the Barneys and Saks Fifth Avenues!

I am disappointed that the county commissioners have stopped progress in its tracks. What do you all think?
What a real bummer as i didn't know the county had that much power over the city.

I do too -- but I guess they figured out that appealing to the unwashed masses works.

Macy's used to and maybe including their (former?) parent Federated were going through some bankruptcy protection/proceeding in the 90's. In CA, Macy's back in the day was all that, then started opening stores in regions not typical to "elite" shopping. And the merchandise selection I noticed and size of store was commensurate with the population of the immediate region. The Macy stores in the more blue collar region stores were different from the ones in upper income areas. And you kenw things were changing when they installed the price scanners and shopping carts. I guess the Target model works and stores like Macy's followed suit.

I lived in Michigan for a little when I was in school, and one day my friends (They were from EP to) and I went to a mall in Troy, Michigan that had a Saks. As we walked through the front door we got this look from one of the ladys working there like "what are you doing here". I guess we looked like aliens (the illegal type)

Are you kidding me? You are saying that in comparision to Dillard's, Saks isn't impressive? Dillard's is nowhere near Saks in the department store game. Saks at Biltmore in Phoenix carries brands that Dillard's dreams about!

Dillard's = Levi's, Birkenstock, Anne Klein, Kenneth Cole Reaction, MICHAEL by Michael Kors, Perry Ellis, Steve Madden, Lauren by Ralph Lauren, BCBG, etc.

Saks = 7 For All Mankind, Christian Louboutin (he even made an appearance at the store to sign shoes), Alexander McQueen, Zac Posen, Ralph Lauren (Black & Purple Label), Prada, Fendi, Herve Leger, Carolina Herrera, Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, Roberto Cavalli, Marc Jacobs, etc.

The difference in products is clear.

I also went to a Saks once and several Nordstroms and I kind of thought the same thing.. it just looked nice in there but nothing really that made me say "wow" They just looked nicer but that was about it.. oh yeah and the merchandise was really expensive.
