Excerpt: Macy's is a U.S. chain of mid-to-high range department stores. In addition to its New York flagship store, the company has designated additional regional flagships in several other major urban centers and as of January 30, 2010) operates over 800 stores in the United States. In addition, Macy's operates eSpot ZoomShops kiosks in over 300 store locations, selling consumer electronics. The company produces the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a noted parade which has been held in New York City annually since 1924. The company also sponsors the city's annual Fourth of July fireworks display, beginning in 1976. Despite being advertised as the largest in the world, it is no longer the biggest store in the world. Currently the biggest store in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, is the flagship store of Shinsegae in Centum City, South Korea with an area of 509,810 square metres (5,487,500 sq ft), almost twice that of Macy's. The chain competes with Belk, The Bon-Ton Stores, Dillard's, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. The Macy's in Herald Square in 1907Macy's was founded by Rowland Hussey Macy, who between 1843 and 1855 opened four retail dry goods stores, including the original Macy's store in downtown Haverhill, Massachusetts, established in 1851 to serve the mill industry employees of the area. They all failed, but he learned from his mistakes. Macy moved to New York City in 1858 and established a new store named "R.H Macy Dry Goods" on Sixth Avenue between 13th and 14th Streets, which was far north of where other dry goods stores were at the time. On the company's first day of business on October 28, 1858 sales totaled US$11.08, equal to $279.82 today. From the very beginning, Macy's logo has included a star in one form or another, which comes from a tattoo that Macy got as a teenager when he worked on a Nantucket whaling ship. As the business grew, Macy's expanded into neighboring buildings, opening more and more department
