I've never understood how department stores like Macy's are even still around anymore. What does someone go to a department store to buy?

Old People. And Rich People. Through a series of poor life choices I ended up in a Macy's this week. I was the youngest person in the store not staff and at least from outward appearances by far the least wealthy.

a suit.

mid-level jewelry.

clothes.

Honestly - I hit up a department store this Christmas and it was jam-packed. There are wide swaths of the world who don't buy some things online. There's no doubt that the tide has shifted and will continue to do so... but there are some things it is nice to go and try on before buying.
