On Saturday morning Kevin and I went to Macy’s to pick up the $500 gift card that I won last week. This was the coolest thing ever. I bought a 25% off coupon for Shop For A Cause for Macy’s from Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, to benefit our team the Primax Pink Warriors. Using this coupon entered me into a random drawing. Five bucks. That’s what it cost.
We went into the store to pick up the gift card and we were greeted, and treated, like rock stars. Kayla gave me a release to sign and off we went to take pictures in front of the store and with several employees. She asked me what I wanted to look at or spend my gift card on and I said I really wanted a pair of Miss Me jeans but I couldn’t justify spending a hundred dollars on a pair of jeans. She said well today you can! So off we went cruising different areas of the store. There were saleswomen in and out of the areas getting things for me and helping me with dresses, shirts, jackets, sizes, and more Miss Me jeans. I have to tell you – it was awesome!
I went into the dressing room many times and when I would come out it was usually to a few employees pausing in their work to ooh and aah or say “hmmm…not the best fit” or “not the best color” or “it’s perfect!”….Kevin sat in a chair outside the dressing room chatting with the women and we both just had such a great time. I kept telling them I was done shopping and then I would find two or three or ten more things to try on, so I did. Kevin was VERY patient with me, as were the Macy’s employees, and I really felt like a rock star – not kidding.
I walked out of that store with two huge bags of clothes, including a pair of Miss Me jeans that I love. Lots of things were on sale so I was able to get a lot of great clothes for just under $500.
The employees that helped make my morning perfect were Sandra, Kayla, Caroline, and Celia. If you are going to go shopping anytime soon, check out Macy’s at South Park Mall and ask for one of the employees listed above. They will treat you like a rock star too – tell them I sent you.
It’s so hard to find good customer service in a lot of places now – but at Macy’s it wasn’t good customer service – it was fabulous customer service. Talk about a great experience! I cannot say enough good things about my shopping spree with Macy’s and their awesome employees.
I never have to remind myself that I am the luckiest girl in the world – things keep happening to make me more grateful and more thankful each and every single day. Listen here breast cancer ….you came and you visited, but I continue to beat your butt! Take THAT stupid cancer.
