The entrance to the new 66,000-square-foot Marshall store is at 206 Washington, as 140 West/100 Barclay is also evidently known, but 99% of the store is below ground. The first escalator leads to a small mezzanine; the second escalator leads to the vast women’s floor; the third leads to the floor with men’s, kids’, home, and pet departments. (Monitors are throughout to deter shoplifters.) The marketing emphasizes the word “surprise,” because the closeout merchandise is always changing. Unlike at Century 21 nearby, the brands top out in the upper midrange. Checkout appears to be limited to one huge line on the women’s floor.
