Watch out Macys! There’s a new retailer in Midtown Manhattan. NYC welcomes a new Target store reported in the NY Times this month.
Macys has been the leading department store retailer for what seems like forever. And it’s no wonder! Founded in 1858 by R. H. Macy, Macys has been in business for 158 years. The products include clothing, footwear, accessories, bedding, furniture, jewelry, beauty products, and housewares. Macys is also very well known for conducting the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City since 1924 and has sponsored the city’s annual Fourth of July fireworks display since 1976.
The Target Corporation is the second-largest discount store retailer in the United States behind Walmart. Founded in 1902 by George Dayton, the company was originally named the Dayton Company. The first Target store opened in Roseville, Minnesota in 1962. Target’s product line is far larger than Macys including food and at a discount.
The new Target store is 43,000 square feet and is expected to open in October at 112 W. 34th St., across the street from the Macy’s flagship store on Herald Square. The complete development at the location is about 92,000 square feet, and will have a Foot Locker, Sephora, and a Swatch store.
Not far from Midtown Manhattan is Murray Hill with its own new East Side NYC luxury apartments with amenities – House 39 at 225 East 39th Street. House 39’s studio, one, two and three bedroom residences feature luxurious interiors including floor-to-ceiling windows exposing outrageous views of Manhattan, chef-style kitchens, modern bathrooms, washer/dryer and a list of amenities that is sure to please everyone.
