Macy’s will bring its off-price, on-trend styles to additional stores nationwide, including flagship locations at State Street in Chicago and Herald Square in New York
NEW YORK – March 22, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Off-price and on-trend, deal hunters take note as Macy’s (NYSE: M) expands its Backstage locations across the country this spring. Beginning April 9 and rolling out through June 2022, Macy’s will open 37 new Macy’s store-within-store Backstage locations nationwide, offering shoppers another way to find and express their personal style at significant savings on fabulous finds.
Macy’s Backstage store-within-stores range from 11,000 to 16,000 square feet of retail space, delivering a constantly changing assortment of on-trend finds. With best-in-class fashion for those who love the thrill of the hunt, customers can find something to fit their style in apparel for women, men, and children; a wide range of toys, housewares, beauty products, designer handbags, activewear and gifts your furry friends will love, plus more.
“Macy’s Backstage inspires customers to express their personal style through its offerings of quality merchandise and brands at great prices, which is why we look forward to bringing Macy’s Backstage into more of our local communities,” said Michael Hersh, Macy’s vice president of off-price. “We are especially excited to bring Backstage to our downtown stores in Chicago and New York City as the brand expands nationwide.”
Fueled by the growth of Macy’s Backstage in nearly 300 stores nationwide, Macy’s will open a Backstage inside the iconic Macy’s State Street flagship store in Chicago on April 9. The deal-friendly shopper’s paradise will also expand to Macy’s New York City flagship store, Herald Square, with over 15,000 square feet of dedicated store within store retail space in May. Customers will be able to shop from luxury to off-price all under one roof.
Macy’s accelerated its off-mall, small format expansion last year with two new free-standing Backstage locations in Dallas, TX and three Market by Macy’s locations in Dallas, TX and Atlanta, GA. Macy’s continues to shift its store fleet to meet the needs of changing consumer behaviors and plans to open additional off-mall locations throughout 2022.
At Macy’s Backstage, shoppers can earn and redeem Star Rewards and use their Macy’s credit card at all locations, creating a seamless experience for those shopping at both Macy’s full-line and Backstage stores. Customers will be inspired to “post and share” their favorite finds and looks using #macysbackstagefinds and tagging @macysbackstage.
