In 2006, Macy's Queens Center store was the first Macy's store to go 24-hours. Due to its unprecedented success, Macy's added additional store locations for the 2007 and 2008 holiday seasons. This year, Macy's added two new 24-hour store locations at the Twelve Oaks and Rosedale Malls in Michigan and Minnesota, respectively. In addition, two 24-hour stores last year - West Farms Mall in Connecticut and Hamilton Mall in New Jersey - will not participate this year. The Macy's Menlo Park store in Menlo Park, NJ, a 24-hour store last year, will have extended store hours until 2 a.m. this year.
