The store offers good infant, child, and teen departments, as well as infant layette items and a small supply of baby toys. Most infant through grade-school clothes for boys and girls are rough-and-tough (Carters, OshKosh, HealthTex), with a few more expensive labels (Ralph Lauren, Little Me) thrown in.
Macy's recently started carrying shoes for kids; selection is adequate and the shoes are very nice for the price.
The Junior/Young Men's departments feature clothes with a hipper feel. You won't find too many clean-cut styles for older boys here - look for hip-hop and skater influenced clothes like baggy pants and logo t-shirts.
We've sometimes had trouble finding clothes for boys too old for matching separates from HealthTex but too young for harder-edged middle-school styles - the selection for girls, toddlers, and preschoolers seems more complete.
