Well....this morning, we had what I think might have been one of the finest experiences in some time. We decided to go quite early - meet at 8:30 AM - and the store wasn't open at that hour. Because of that, we had a "personal escort" from the curb to the Walnut Room. Pretty nice!
Then...they had a GREAT tree!
The food was fine - it was a breakfast buffet - and the staff was pretty good in fact. I'm not going to concede that Macy's has improved the experience, but they've at least worked out some of the kinks.
I fondly remember the Walnut Room experience from my childhood as an almost dreamlike experience. In fact, the whole Marshall Field's experience is still pretty dreamlike. Both Nat and I remarked about how weird it must have been to walk into that place for the first time as a shopper back in the day.
Because of these personal memories, I'm hopeful that the Babe will have similar ones, too. Based on today's experience, Macy's is well on their way to ensuring that those memories happen.
