Enjoy the Parade this Thanksgiving with our MACY's book!

Posted: 2017/11/17

On the occasion next week of its 93rd annual Thanksgiving Day Parade (and the store's 159th year of operation), you may want to cozy up and learn all about Macy's remarkable history as America's most beloved department store in the book MACY'S: The Store. The Star. The Story (Square One, $24.95 USD). The book is the work of expert historian Robert M. Grippo, who has been a fan of "the World's Largest Store" ever since he was a kid. Featuring lively text, rare photographs, and colorful illustrations throughout, this book highlights all the people and events—together with the trends, tragedies, and traditions—that transformed Macy's from a modest storefront into the world-renowned American success story that it remains to this day.

Celebrated as a "lavishly illustrated history" by Publishers Weekly, and applauded for providing "great historical context through the bottom-of-the-page illustrated footers chronicling events, celebrities, and politics of that era" by Booklist in their prized Starred Review, this wonderful book about this country's still-beloved "Miracle on 34th Street" is a real treat of a book.
