The Top Ten

1
Walmart
The items in Walmart are always lower in price. Sometimes I tried to go to other places and wanted to try something new. However, I finally still will end in Walmart to buy more things because I do not want to waste my time to drive around.
Best prices on things people need.
The locations are convenient and the people usually aren't prejudiced towards you like at other establishments.

2Macy's
I work there and there is a lot of things to choose from and lots of sales you can't miss
Always well-stocked with general consumer -and- upscale items at surprisingly modest prices. Frequent Sales add to their "price appeal." Sales staff are extremeley courteous and generally well-informed. I'm a great fan of Macy's and do, perhaps, 80% of my shopping with them. Note that their online website is also a wonderful way to shop and compare ALL of the items they carry!
Macy's is the very best store to shop. You can always find something you need or can use. Blessed Long Island New York

3Kohl's
The best! No deceptive advertising, great salespeople, efficient cashiers, a no-hassle return policy... I LOVE KOHL'S! AND they have brand names I like for examble Converse, etc. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE KOHL's! And I love the coupons they email! THanks Kohl's!
Koh's offers so much more than any other retailers I know. On top of Sales they are always having coupon deals which they are willing to e-mail to any of their customers. (ex. % offs, and KOHL'S CASH-the best) Their return policy is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It is so nice to be able to return something without having to explain anything and be made to prove I'm and honest customer.
Always find great deals. Enjoy that they have quality merchandise. A very welcoming environment and very helpful employees. Even after saving money they give you cash back so you can shop once again and a great shirt that could have cost $14 ends up costing $4. Kohl's is #1 for its great service its unbeatable offers and its great quality products.

MY PULSE IT RACES, WITHOUT A CARE!
SO WITH THAT DEAR, NORDY, I'LL CLOSE THIS RHYME
BUT YOUR THE BEST, NOW-THEN-ANYTIME! ANDREA PIERCE, GREAT FALLS, MONTANA
There isn't another department store that compares to Nordstrom in customer service and quality of products. They carry the best brands and most current fashions while delivering legendary service!
Customer service seems to be a dying art in most stores. Nordstrom is only
store which has continued the practice of great customer service.

10Neiman-Marcus
Neiman Marcus has the most exclusive, and highest end selection of any department store. Their customer service exceeds that of any department store in the us.
Secure ordering system and online stock availability updated always.
Fast and free international delivery by courier service and packed so nicely.

The Contenders

11Dillard's
Dillard's has great product selections from all the top vendors and their customer service is excellent. I enjoy how organized and neat their store is, it make shopping easier.
Great service, good brands and pricing. Stores are always well organized and bright.
The upscale and nice brands that nieman marcus would have with a little bit of savings on price

12Bloomingdale's
No. 6! You gotta be kidding me! Bloomy's is the best of them all hands down! Nicest store layout of all the other "high end" department stores. Largest selection. Product exclusives! 59th St. Flagship store, you can't beat it!
Bloomiess! The store is a fantastic place for great buys, fantastic jeans and fashionable items. Their jeans last FOREVER, too! They have shoes for every occasion. Their suits have such a perfect fit to them. LOVELOVELOVEthis store.
Best selection for everything!

13Saks Fifth Avenue
Saks is the BOMB! I love it. The clothes are really expensive but it is so worth the money!
Saks beats NM hands down on service and quality
If your thinking about buying high end clothing and want to do it at a department store instead of a small boutique, then SAKS is where you want to be. Stores such as Macy's and Khols are NOW considered as common as Tjmaxx.

14Bon-Ton
Love the quality and price point of the merchandise. Great Store, with friendly associates.

15Martins

16Abercrombie & Fitch
They have really cute clothes. I have seen lots of people who wear there clothes.

Aeropostale is an amazing store for guys and girls. Their prices are a little high, but they always have a great sale going on. The clothes are really cute, especially the sweaters and hoodies.


36Forever 21

37Sears

38Von Maur
Great Customer service. Free shipping, gift wrap. Free alterations on basic alterations: unlined skirts, ladies slacks.

39Barneys New York

40Belk
Probably my favorite. For one, I consider it an actual department store. Two, the prices are set at a reasonable price and the discount is actually a discount. If you ever go into kohls and notice their original pricing? It's an outrageous markup. They only do that so it looks like you are getting a sale.
I really like this store, it is my favorite department store! Usually lower priced then other stores and ALWAYS having sales! I wish they had more locations though.
Good Quality, good prices, good selection. Everything that Macy's is not.
