This is a well-known department store all over New York. Sorta like your Macy's and Filene's but it's a discount store. Better quality than your Kmart/Walmart with reasonable prices. Possibly equivalent to a Kohl's, middle-ground? They carry all sorts of mechandise - housewares, clothing, electronics, etc. If you like window shopping at huge department stores and enjoy bargains, this might be the store for you.
