Macy's expands 48-hour last minute holiday shopping marathon

Dec. 7, 2012

Macy's has announced the expansion of its annual last-minute shopping marathon to stores nationwide. For 48 hours, beginning at 7 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 21 through 7 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 23, last-minute shoppers can shop non-stop for holiday gift items.

Macy's began the tradition of keeping its doors open 24-hours with Macy's Queens Center in 2006, adding additional stores in subsequent years. Last year Macy's offered extended shopping hours in 14 locations that were open 24 hours and in 27 locations that offered prolonged hours, the announcement said. 

"For the first time ever, Macy's will keep most stores open around the clock for the last weekend of holiday shopping, an expansion of our successful marathon that began at select stores in 2006," said Peter Sachse, Macy’s chief stores officer. "We hope to make it easy for our customers across the country to finish their shopping at any time of day or night, and with the benefit of the great deals and value they count on from our One Day Sale events."
