I need to buy two large suitcases, preferably with rollers. They need to be pretty resilient, and (consequently) they don't have to be the cheapest available--though I don't think I'm ready for Globe-Trotter prices, either.
I have seen this thread
, which has given me some ideas of brands to look out for--more suggestions are welcome. But more precisely, where would you buy these things in NYC? Is Macy's the best bet? (It's certainly nice and close to Penn Station, which is convenient for me.)
Possibly relevant, to anyone who suggests I should buy online instead: I will be leaving the country with these bags, permanently, just before Christmas. If I order online, I need to be sure they will arrive within a week so I know how much of my stuff needs to be shipped rather than taken on the plane, and there will be little or no leeway for dealing with any problems. ("But I ordered CANARY YELLOW!") This is why I think I'll be better off buying them in-store, but I'd be happy to hear about on-line options if you really think that would work.
