And by all means support our Macy’s, I know it’s a difficult economy but we are lucky to finally have this great department store in Center City in this historic building, and I don’t want to lose it. Now if they carried big and tall sizes I would definitely shop there more, but nowadays I can only buy socks and cologne.
