Previously, we reported on Macy's $400 million renovation of its Manhattan flagship, including the 'world's largest' shoe floor. These luxury shops further solidify Macy's efforts to take the store more upscale.
Given that this website is becoming Canadian-focussed (we live in Vancouver, BC), we'll be providing updates on a similar strategy playing out with Canada's Hudson's Bay Company.
