Macy's Department Store Opens In Tyler

A new department store, with a national name, opens its doors in Tyler today.  Macy's, located in the old Foley's Department Store, had its grand opening this morning. People lined up early, as the first 500 people received gift cards in amounts anywhere from $10 to $1,000.

Many say they are excited to see Macy's come to Tyler.  "I recently moved from Columbia, South Carolina and they had a Macy's out there that we used to shop at pretty regular, and I was glad to see a Macy's come in," said customer Pam Lee. 

"It is great to see this kind of reception," said Macy's store manager Bill Miner. "Macy's has had a national name for years, but it's nice to see it here locally."  

Tyler's location is just one of 400 Macy's opening nationwide Saturday. There are now more than 800 Macy's in 45 states.
