The New Store Is Ready
1858 Forty=four Years of Macy's 1902
The history of the store reads like a chapter from the Arabian Nights. It was started forty-four
years ago, in an humble way, by Rowland H. Macy. His tirst day's sales amounted to $ 1 1 .06.
From that beginning the store has developed into the largest and among the most perfectly organ
ized business enterprises in the world.
The active needs and exigencies of the business made the erection of a building of the huge di
mensions of the new Macy's an imperative necessity. We had to push twenty blocks northward
in order to secure adequate space and logical location. Sweeping away thirty-nine stores and
residences, besides one of the largest theatres in America, was a mere incident that prepared the
way for the immense structure that our methods and your appreciation have made possible.
When casting about to find the ideal modern department store— architect, artist, merchant, cus
tomer—all, we believe, must ultimately turn to Macy's as the highest exponent— the best type.
Completed, it epitomizes the results gained by studying, adapting, combining and, whenever
possible, bettering every phase of merchandising. All the most practical ideas that have been ap
plied to American and European retailing may be found here, modified or amplified, as required,
to render them of largest value to you and to us.
You've been reading our
advertising for nearly half
a century. Have you ever
been misled? Every state
ment that goes into the
papers must be exact.
What we say to-day does
not have to be unsaid to
morrow. That's why this
business hasgrown. Con
fidence in Macy's is a heri
tage that thousands of
families have sustained
through three generations.
The children of to-day be
lieve in us because their
parents do, just as their
parents were won to
Macy's by the rugged
steadfastness of their par
ents. We still follow the
policy that has mace our
friends so adhesive all

A Forward Look.
The old Macy's— a new store, another location, larger stocks,
greater facilities, better conveniences— but the same princi
ples, changed only by broader opportunities for higher de
velopment. Our Past means much to us and to you. It is
inspiration for the Present— the hope of the Future. Nearly
half 1 century of retailing ! Mistakes have been made, of
course. But the heart of the business has been sound. Errors
were corrected as quickly as discovered. Perfection has not
yet been attained. Human endeavor may never reach that
point. But our Past is our bond to our public. There is no
shadow on it — no period of its growth that we would obscure
or discount by excuses or apologies. Our best has always
been done— and that is why improvement has followed im
provement. We lift the standard of service higher each day.
Every blunder has had its lesson — and we have never been
unmindful of it.
Reliable Qualities and Exclusive Novelties.
Increased space enables us to offer our old customers, in far
greater assortments, the class of merchandise they have al
ways bought of us. And we have strengthened every de
partment by the addition of higher grades, which our former
limited quarters did not permit us to carry. The same sterl
ing principles that have held and will keep on holding our
old standbys, should appeal to and, we hope, will attract
many ncn thousands to the new Macy store.

be. but it will be in the neighborhood of the great
railroad terminals. As to the suggestion that a
site near the Pennsylvania station would be de
sirable, it must be remembered that i.;:id values
in Slxth-ave. are tremendously high. The new

always favored a postofflce us near the. Grand

LIABILITY Of EXPRESS COUrAXIES.
PLAINTIFF C.ETS JLDOMENT FOR *&>. ALTHOUGH
THK RtVEIPT SPECIFIED »K> AS THE LIMIT.
Justices McLean. Freeman and Greenbaum. in
the Appellate term of the Supreme Court, have de
cided that an express company cannot limit Its
liability for property lost through lt» negligence,
because of its assertion on Its receipts that It will
not lie liable for any sum exceeding *50. to that
amount. The decision was rendered in an appeal
from a judgment rendered In faror of Jacob C.
Simon against Dunlap's Express Company.
Simon, about two years ago. who was a member
of the nrm of Charles Simon's Sons, wholesale
hosiery dealers, at No. 512 Broadway, sent a pair
of lace curtains to a cleaner. He directed the
cleaner to return the curtains to him by Dunlap's
Express Company The cleaner took the usual re
ceipt from the express company, containing the
declaration that it would net be liable for more
The curtains were lost, and Simon through his
attorneys. Hoffman * Wahle. brought suit to re
cover 123». the value of the curtains. Charles L.
Hoffman contended that the liability clause was
illegal b -cause it permitted an express company to
take advantage of Its own negligencr. and thereby
cause owners of goods forwarded for delivery
serious loss. Simon obtained judgment for the full
amount claimed by him. and fram this judgment
the express company appealed.
