STORE WARS:  Macys vs. Target

Strengths:  Versatility.  Accessibility.  Balance of affordable yet still nice.  Their One Day Sales.  Their strong in-house brand Alfani Red.  Good sub $300 suits.  Levi’s that go on sale a lot.  Some INC offerings.  The 20% off monthly coupons they send card members.  Decent watches.  A good place to find your significant other a gift.

Weaknesses: Their shoe department. can get a little clunky and shipping can be steep.  Sometimes those coupons come with a boatload of exclusions.  And seriously, when are they NOT having some kind of sale?

Strengths: Incredibly inexpensive but still has some good looking stuff.  Their Mossimo tees and polos.  Their Merona dress shirts aren’t half bad either.

Weaknesses: Lack of quantity and variety in fitted clothing.  Quality can be an issue.  Can feel like an upscale WalMart.  Most have a weird snackbar.  Lots of kids running around.

Your votes determine who moves on to the next round.  Cast your ballot below:
UPDATE: And Macy’s moves on with a convincing win.
