Tips for shopping:

If you're planning to shop in-store Macy's, check the prices online, too. If you're in the store and find that the price is lower online (at macys.com) just tell them at the register and they will match the price in the store!

In my experience, if you order something online from Nordstrom, the actual arrival date of the item is usually much sooner than the estimated date of arrival. However, I don't know if that holds true during the holidays.

If you have a local Nordstrom, stop for lunch in the cafe! If it's anything like ours, the food is delicious! It's almost like a fine dining experience for a fraction of the price!

Happy shopping!
