Round-the-Clock Shopping Returns as Macy’s Brings Back Its Overnight Hours at Select Stores

Extended Store Hours and 24-Hour Shopping Starts Friday, Dec. 20

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 18, 2013-- Last minute holiday shoppers receive their Christmas presents early this year with the gift of extra time as Macy’s brings back its seasonal tradition, 24-hour shopping. Beginning Friday, Dec. 20 at 7 a.m., 37 Macy’s stores in select cities across the country including Macy’s Herald Square in New York City; Union Square in San Francisco; and State Street in Chicago will stay open overnight for four days in a row of non-stop shopping until Christmas Eve on Tuesday, Dec. 24 at 6 p.m.

With a shorter shopping season, Macy’s customers will be able to enjoy 107 hours of ‘round-the-clock shopping to ensure that everyone on the list receives the very best gift. A customer service initiative since 2006, Macy’s 24-hour shopping is a holiday tradition that makes the season less hectic with stores remaining open all-night during the homestretch of the Christmas season. Less holiday crowds and shorter lines are an added bonus as Macy’s makes sure that time is on everyone’s side. In addition to the 24-hour stores, mostly all stores nationwide, except furniture galleries and select locations, will offer extended hours each night until 2 a.m. thru Dec. 23, making Macy’s the go-to store for gifting.

“Overnight shopping at Macy’s has become a holiday tradition that last minute gift-givers count on to get them through the time crunch of the season,” said Peter Sachse, chief stores officer, Macy’s, Inc. “Our customers already love to shop with us for the best gifts, but they also love that our stores stay open providing them with the convenience of late-night or early morning hours so that they can shop when they choose.”
