In August of 2006, Macy’s opened in Center City Philadelphia. The store’s site — the former John Wanamaker building — has been recognized as one of the most architecturally significant retail spaces in the U.S. and is a National Historical Landmark.

With a three-story steel structure and Italian and Greek marble arches decorating the store’s Grand Court, the Macy’s building is nothing short of an architectural masterpiece.

Whether you have a passion for architecture or fine shopping, the Macy’s building should be a stop on your trip to Philadelphia. You can even take a narrated tour of the building — in addition to browsing the store’s extensive collection of clothing, shoes and accessories.

The store boasts many landmarks, but the undisputed highlight is its “Great Pipe Organ.” Originally erected in 1904, the organ is one of the world’s largest. And Macy’s Grand Court is the ideal location for it, offering exceptional acoustics to the organ’s incredibly dynamic sound.

Don’t miss the annual Holiday Light Show, a light-and-sound extravaganza in the Grand Court that dates back to 1955.

An added perk to any international or out-of state visitor is Macy’s 11% welcome savings pass. Visit the store’s visitor center to collect your discount pass, then enjoy an 11% discount in addition to tax-free shopping on clothing and shoes.
