Demolition crews reduced the 10-story Macy’s Department Store to rubble early this morning.  There were concerns that weekend rain could delay the implosion, but that proved not to be the case.


The Main Street store opened as Foley’s 66-years ago, and had long played a role in Houston’s history and development.


Owners of the site plan to develop a new retail space at the location.
