Macy’s extends store hours for holiday shopping

NEW YORK — Macy’s said Monday it has brought back its “24-hour” stores for three all-nighters beginning Dec. 21. Starting at 7 a.m., 14 Macy’s stores will stay open for 83 hours straight for non-stop shopping until Christmas Eve on Dec. 24 at 6 p.m.

Another 27 Macy’s stores will stay open until 2 a.m. on those same three nights.

“Our 24-hour stores have been a hit with holiday shoppers for the past five years,” said Ron Klein, chief stores officer, Macy’s. “Our customers have told us when they want to shop, and after-hours and overnight shopping comes out a clear winner as the countdown to Christmas gets closer.”

Macy’s added 18 stores that will stay open until 2 a.m., to total 27.

In 2006, Macy’s Queens (N.Y.) Center store was the first Macy’s store to go 24-hours.
