Macy’s and Frank, finally reopening!

According to their press release and KATU, it’s looking like the Macy’s at Meier & Frank Square (the one downtown) which closed completely for the refurbishment will finally come out from underneath the scaffolding and dumpsters in about a month.

Now there are banners up, advertising the 26th and 27th of October as the grand reopening. There will be a fundraiser to kick it all off, and it looks like they actually did finish in time for the “new” to wear off so people can get Christmas shopping done.

Their press release states they have refurbished the Santaland Monorail, but they stated before that the monorail wouldn’t be operating when they came back, so I’m not sure what they mean, but at least they didn’t get rid of it.

Now if only they weren’t stuck in the middle of bus mall reconstruction so people could actually get there easily….

    A fundraiser for what?

    I’m betting the city will push the construction away from that part of town as the holiday shopping season nears. Didn’t they shut all of the downtown road/MAX construction down entirely last November/December?

    I think so but I’m not sure.

    It’ll be great to see Meier & Frank back, even if it isn’t Meier & Frank anymore. I’ll be curious to see what they really did in terms of renovations.
