RIP Macy's/Foley's, 1947-2013: Pictures from the Wake
Photos by Abrahan Garza
It started out as a Foley's, turned into a Macy's and ended up a sad, empty hulk in the middle of downtown.
The big blank block that served as a downtown department store for almost 66 years closed down over the weekend.
We listed six oddities you may not have known about the store (A fallout shelter for 39,000 people? Spider-Man battling the Hulk?), and on Saturday our Abrahán Garza went to document the last few hours.
"The only items I saw for sale, other than fixtures and empty jewelry cases, were mink coats," he says.
