We approve that they chose Saks over Macy’s. DOWN WITH MACY’S HERALD SQUARE. No but seriously, that store gives me anxiety. World’s Best Shopping: Stores That Are Quintessentially Part Of A City As two people who have never been on a cruise and couldn’t really pinpoint why, we like Rick Steves’s take on his first experience.
