    This historical location was the flagship to Marshall Field's prior to Macy's acquiring the brand in 2005. I recommend visiting this building around the holidays because it is so beautifully decorated. The exterior of the building is as beautiful as the interior. So i recommend this location not necessarily for the shopping but to learn some Chicago history.

    Worked at this Macy's as a seasonal sales associate and did all of my Christmas shopping here that year. Outstanding customer service, great products, clean and orderly store, big savings during the holidays with your Macy's card.

    This place used to be really special as Marshall Fields. The architecture is still nice and it is still lovely at Christmas but not nearly as special as it once was.

    I like only the fact that this is the old Marshall Field building. Otherwise, I am still bitter with how Macy's handled taking over Marshall Field's and refuse to buy anything here if I can avoid it.

    Macy's on State Street is the second largest department store in the world, so it's definitely a destination you wanna check out even just to say you've been there. The 5th floor ceiling is covered with 1.6 million pieces of Tiffany glass. We discovered it from our guide on a trolley tour. It has the standard Macy's products and brands, but it is a very large store w/ multiple levels.

    My advice: If you've had a busy day and visit the store, plan to take a break. The store is overwhelming if you visit multiple departments and after a long day of sightseeing it can be tiring.

    It's Macy's and it's on State Street. Not much more than that. They did however keep around the large patina'd clocks on the corner that were so strongly associated with Marshall Fields. That is worth seeing.

    The parade by this location is very popular. Sales are like in any other location but the facility is HUGE!

    Parking is easy to find under the railway track at the backside of the building

    I've been going there to look at the windows at Christmas since it was Marshall Fields.

Description

Frank Sinatra once sang that State Street was a great street, and one of the mainstays has been Macy's, formerly known as Marshall Field & Company. The State Street location is truly massive and can make for an all-day shopping experience. Not only is the building a National Historic Landmark, but it also is the second-largest department store in the world. The store was built in 1892 and has 12 floors of retail and dining space. Special events are held throughout the year, most notably the annual Macy's Holiday Celebrations in November and December featuring the 45-foot-tall Christmas tree in the Walnut Room.
