Macy’s, Inc. Announces Three-Year Polaris Strategy to Stabilize Profitability and Position the Company for Growth

  • Provides preliminary 4Q and full-year 2019 sales results, narrows annual EPS guidance to upper end of range; provides 2020 guidance and three-year financial targets
  • Begins a reset of fixed cost base to stabilize and then grow profitability and cash flows; expects annual gross cost savings of $1.5 billion to be fully realized by year-end 2022, with $600 million gross cost savings achieved in 2020
  • Prepares to launch next phase of successful Macy’s Star Rewards loyalty program
  • Lays out plans to build four $1 billion power private brands
  • Optimizes store portfolio by continuing the Growth treatment of stores in best malls, closing approximately 125 stores in lower tier malls within three years, and exploring new off-mall formats
  • Establishes single corporate headquarters and relocates digital business to New York City, the heart of the fashion industry

Macy’s, Inc. today announced an updated strategy and three-year plan designed to stabilize profitability and position the company for growth.

We have a clear vision of where Macy’s, Inc. and our brands, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s and Bluemercury, fit into retail today. We are confident in our Polaris strategy, and we have the resources required to return Macy’s, Inc. to sustainable, profitable growth,” said Jeff Gennette, chairman and chief executive officer of Macy’s, Inc.We will focus our resources on the healthy parts of our business, directly address the unhealthy parts of the business and explore new revenue streams. Over the past three years, we have shown we can grow the top-line; however, we have significant work to do to improve the bottom-line. We are confident the strategy we are announcing today will allow us to stabilize margin in 2020 and set the foundation for sustainable, profitable growth.”

We are taking the organization through significant structural change to lower costs, bring teams closer together and reduce duplicative work. This will be a tough week for our team as we say goodbye to great colleagues and good friends. The changes we are making are deep and impact every area of the business, but they are necessary. I know we will come out of this transition stronger, more agile and better fit to compete in today’s retail environment,” continued Gennette.

The five major components of the Polaris strategy are outlined below.

Strengthen Customer Relationships

The company is focusing on building customer lifetime value, accelerating personalization and monetization programs and expanding its loyalty program. This includes the launch of the next phase of its already successful Macy’s Star Rewards Loyalty program later this month. Loyalty 3.0 is expected to increase the engagement of occasional Macy’s customers and to bring new customers into the brand.

Curate Quality Fashion

Customers come to Macy’s for a compelling curation of the latest trends, exclusive products and the best brands at great value. Macy’s is driving disciplined merchandise product category roles to be the top destination for the best brands, while balancing sales and margin. As part of the merchandising strategy, the company is committed to a more focused approach to its higher-margin private brands business with plans to build four $1 billion brands.

Accelerate Digital Growth

The company has a scaled and growing digital business across its brands that generates more than $6 billion per year in sales. Macys.com contributes to overall operating profit, and the company will continue to invest in its websites and mobile apps to deliver a superior fashion experience, accelerate growth and further strengthen profitability.

The macys.com headquarters will relocate from San Francisco to New York City, the heart of the fashion industry. This will allow for better coordination and increased collaboration and better access to Macy’s brand partners. The company will also expand its presence in the Atlanta area, which will serve as the primary technology hub for the company. This includes adding positions to its current Johns Creek, GA, facility, as well as opening an office in Atlanta.

Optimize Store Portfolio

Store Closures and Staffing

The company completed a rigorous evaluation of Macy’s store portfolio. This included a store-level assessment of each store’s overall value to the fleet, including predicted profitability based on consumer trends and demographics. As a result, Macy’s plans to close approximately 125 of its least productive stores over the next three years, including approximately 30 stores that are in the process of closure now. These approximately 125 stores currently account for approximately $1.4 billion in annual sales.

Across the remaining store fleet, the company is adjusting its staffing with reductions in some stores and increases in others.

The updated stores strategy better serves today’s shopper who expects a consistent experience whenever and wherever they encounter the Macy’s brand.

“Our customers expect convenience and a tailored experience across all channels. We have an opportunity to build a broader yet integrated Macy’s experience within a metropolitan area by investing in our magnet stores, building freestanding Backstage locations and testing new, off-mall store formats,” said Gennette. “The more convenient, brand-right touchpoints we have, the greater loyalty and engagement we engender. This will enable us to grow with the next generation of American shoppers.”

Thank you, Macy’s, for five years of partnership and helping 165,000 people here in the U.S.”

The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used clothing from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributing those clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Clothes4Souls is committed to the highest standards of operating and governance.

Coats donated through the program average in retail price from $40 to $100 and distribution will take place in cities across America, beginning in November. To view this year’s outerwear assortment and participate in “Buy a Coat & We’ll Donate One,” visit macys.com.

Retail News: Macy’s, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and FY2016 Results

Diluted 2016 EPS is $1.99, or $3.11 as adjusted; Company provides 2017 sales and earnings guidance

Macy’s, Inc. (NYSE: M) today reported fiscal 2016 earnings per diluted share of $1.99, or $3.11 per diluted share excluding certain items discussed below.macyslogo

Macy’s, Inc., with corporate offices in Cincinnati and New York, is one of the nation’s premier retailers, with fiscal 2016 sales of $25.778 billion. The company operates more than 700 department stores under the nameplates Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s, and approximately 125 specialty stores that include Bloomingdale’s Outlet, Bluemercury and Macy’s Backstage, in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico, as well as the macys.com, bloomingdales.com, and bluemercury.com websites. Bloomingdale’s in Dubai is operated by Al Tayer Group LLC under a license agreement.

While 2016 was not the year we expected, we made significant progress on key initiatives that are starting to bear fruit. These include continued improvement in our digital platforms, the rollout of our new approach to fine jewelry and women’s shoes, an increase in exclusive merchandise and the refinement of our clearance and off-price strategy. We also took a big step forward in rightsizing our physical footprint and restructuring our entire organization. The combination of these initiatives will help us gain market share, return to growth and drive enhanced value for our shareholders over time,” said Terry J. Lundgren, Macy’s chairman and chief executive officer.

We will be investing for the future in 2017. Looking at the continued challenges in the retail environment and changing consumer shopping behaviors, we know we must evolve our strategy and execute faster,” Lundgren said. “Key to this is enhancing the customer experience in our stores where we are developing and testing concepts that feature new merchandise and entertainment options alongside enhanced technology to make shopping simpler. Additional initiatives that we believe will improve sales trends in 2017 include continued omnichannel improvements, an updated marketing strategy, and a simplified pricing structure.”

We continued to make progress on the execution of our real estate strategy in the fourth quarter of 2016 and will carry that momentum into 2017. Overall, real estate transactions in fiscal 2016 generated cash proceeds of approximately $675 million, which is helping to fund continued reinvestment in the business. We also began work on deriving value from our partnership with Brookfield Asset Management. We are excited by the potential of our real estate strategy, and in 2017, we will focus on advancing the Brookfield partnership and continuing to monetize the locations that we have closed or plan to close. We are also developing strategies that will help create value for Herald Square while making the store an even more vibrant retail experience,” Lundgren added.

For the full year 2016, adjusted earnings (excluding items described below) were $3.11 per diluted share. This exceeds the company’s most recent guidance for 2016 earnings of $2.95 to $3.10 on the same basis. Fiscal 2016 comparable sales on an owned basis declined by 3.5 percent. On an owned plus licensed basis, comparable sales for fiscal 2016 declined by 2.9 percent.

For each letter collected in-store and online, Macy’s will donate $1, up to $1 million, to Make-A-Wish, the national organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. In addition to letter writing, this year’s campaign will bring back the beloved National Believe Day on December 9.

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true has positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illness, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Headquartered in Phoenix, Make-A-Wish is one of the world’s leading children’s charities, serving children in every community in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and more than 28,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a wish somewhere in the country every 35 minutes. It has granted more than 270,000 wishes since its inception in 1980; more than 14,800 in 2015 alone. Visit Make-A-Wish at www.wish.org to learn more.

This is an incredibly important milestone for any organization, and we are proud to be celebrating it with Make-A-Wish as part of this year’s Believe campaign,” said Holly Thomas, group vice president of Cause Marketing for Macy’s. “Our program has touched the lives of our customers, employees, and most importantly, the lives of wish kids and their families across the country. We hope to provide even more support to Make-A-Wish this holiday season through our letter writing campaign, so they can continue their mission and meet the growing need of wishes across the country.”

The season also marks a major milestone, as Macy’s will celebrate $100 million in total giving to Make-A-Wish since 2003, with nearly $13 million donated through the Believe campaign. That represents nearly three wishes granted every day for the past 13 years, and more than 2.4 million people impacted in total by wishes that Macy’s has helped to grant, including wish kids and their families, volunteers, community groups, nurses, doctors and more.

Clothes4Souls, a division of Soles4Souls, is a not for profit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of clothing. The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used clothing from individuals, schools, faith based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributing those clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Clothes4Souls is committed to the highest standards of operating and governance. (Please visit www.clothes4souls.org for more information.)

To help customers save while giving back, Macy’s will offer 40 to 50 percent off a large selection of outerwear during the length of the campaign.

Our program with Clothes4Souls is one that our customers and employees look forward to every fall season,” said Holly Thomas, Macy’s group vice president of Cause Marketing. “With 130,000 new coats donated to date, we’ve seen incredible impact in our local communities. It’s an honor to partner with Clothes4Souls to once again bring brand new coats to people in need, and we hope to be able to deliver another 35,000 coats this year.macyslogo

It’s such a privilege to be working with Macy’s for the fourth year in a row,” said Buddy Teaster, Soles4Souls President and CEO. “The fact that we have been able to put 130,000 coats into the hands of people who need them most is extraordinary. A new coat can help provide much needed warmth during the harsh winter months and can bridge the economic gap for thousands across America. Macy’s and its customers understand the power they have to make a difference and we couldn’t be happier to be a partner in this work.”

Coats donated through the program average in retail price from $40 to $100 and distribution will take place in cities across America, beginning in November. To view this year’s outerwear assortment to participate in “Buy 1 & We’ll Donate 1,” visit macys.com.

Together Macy’s and PEANUTS have a long history of entertaining generations of fans, dating back to the first-ever Snoopy balloon in the 1968 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade,” said Amy Kule, group vice president, Macy’s Parade & Entertainment Group. “This year, we are celebrating the milestone anniversaries of this American treasure by putting Peanuts and its beloved characters front and center during the holidays at Macy’s, with featured roles in a host of our most beloved holiday traditions – from our collectible plush and animated holiday windows to our iconic Thanksgiving Day Parade.macys_on_black_se_8540

Peanuts and Macy’s are two brands that are essential to celebrating the holidays – it just isn’t the holiday season until you see Snoopy soar down the streets of Manhattan in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and watch Charlie Brown decorate his pathetic tree in ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas,’” said Leigh Anne Brodsky, managing director of Peanuts Worldwide. “This year, as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas,’ that connection will be even stronger as Snoopy and his sister, Belle, star as the collectible plush package and the Peanuts gang is featured in Macy’s windows around the country.”

Rachel Zoe And Rodger Berman To Host OCRF’s First-Ever Super Saturday Event In Las Vegas

Ovarian Cancer Research Fund’s Luxury Shopping Event to be held at Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian & The Palazzo and Fashion Show, Sept. 19-20

The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) will bring its popular Super Saturday shopping event to the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian & The Palazzo, and Fashion Show Las Vegas with unique spin. Hosted by Designer, Stylist, Editor and Author Rachel Zoe and husband and business partner Rodger Berman, the annual event, which New York Newsday called the ‘hottest summer event in the Hamptons,’ will launch in Vegas Sept. 19- 20, 2015.

OCRF’s Super Saturday designer shopping extravaganza, was created in 1998 by Donna Karan and the late Liz Tilberis (the late Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar US, who has since died from the disease). Super Saturday Los Angeles launched in 2014, and is hosted by Rachel Zoe and Molly Sims. In 2014, at both Super Saturday Los Angeles and New York, more than 2,000 people attended the events and raised over $ 4.1 million with net proceeds going directly to OCRF and its programs. Special guests included celebrities, influencers, designers, media, supporters and their families, and fashion lovers. The Hamptons event has been hosted by Kelly Ripa and Donna Karan while the LA event was hosted by Rachel Zoe, Rodger Berman, Molly Sims and Scott Stuber.

The exclusive Las Vegas weekend will showcase an assortment of special retail incentives from luxury brands including Michael Kors, Tory Burch, DVF, Fendi, Robert Graham, Melissa Shoes, Ted Baker London, Topshop, Links of London and Island Company to name a few. Most participating retailers will donate a percentage of weekend sales to OCRF.


A force within the fashion and design industry for nearly two decades, Zoe has been heralded as one of the most influential forces working in fashion today. In addition to dressing clients for a bevy of red carpet events, styling countless editorial spreads, and lending her vast expertise to brands, Zoe has authored two New York Times best-selling books, and is the Editor in Chief of The Zoe Report, her online style destination and newsletter. As a designer, Zoe makes her exceptional taste and expertise accessible to the fashion savvy with Rachel Zoe Collection, comprised of ready-to-wear, footwear and jewelry lines. Zoe will soon return to television as the host of her own late night talk show, Fashionably Late with Rachel Zoe, which will debut September 24th on Lifetime. Attendees can also meet Rachel Zoe when she signs copies of her newest book Living in Style.


The two-day extravaganza will feature a VIP brunch at Barneys New York, a Pucker Up Bar, Canyon Ranch SpaClub pop-up spa, a Pepsi Lounge, and Sephora makeup touch-ups.  A signature gift with purchase — two complimentary show tickets to Rock of Ages — will be available for those who spend $750 (restrictions apply – see official event guide for complete details).
Fashion Show will also highlight not-to-be-missed runway shows on the center’s elevated stage, featuring Saks Fifth Avenue and top seasonal must-haves.


We are thrilled to bring OCRF’s Super Saturday to the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian, The Palazzo and Fashion Show Las Vegas. Their support of OCRF’s research programs will further propel us in our fight to find a cure for ovarian cancer,” says Audra Moran, president & CEO, Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is the oldest and largest charity in the United States funding ovarian cancer research that leads to more effective identification, treatment, and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer, as well as related educational and support initiatives. Each year there will be approximately 22,000 new cases of ovarian cancer in the United States, and nearly 15,500 women will die of the disease. Currently there is no effective means of early detection.


“Vegas is the ultimate fashion destination. It’s the only place in the world where you can shop every top designer and brand in one central location,” says Janet LaFevre, senior marketing manager, Grand Canal Shoppes and Fashion Show. “Being able to bring Super Saturday to Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian, The Palazzo and Fashion Show gives our guests a chance to enjoy incredible shopping, dining, and entertainment all while contributing to a significant cause. We are elated to announce this partnership and first-ever Vegas location.”


Since 1998, OCRF has awarded over $65 million to ovarian cancer researchers around the country. OCRF-sponsored investigators are developing innovative strategies for early detection; exploring the genetics that increase risk for ovarian cancer; understanding the underlying molecular biology of the disease; identifying new and better targets for treatment; and deciphering how and why ovarian cancer spreads, and how to stop it. OCRF also supports a national program, Woman to Woman, which in 2015 will be providing support through more than 20 hospitals around the country to women in treatment for any gynecologic cancer, as well as their families, by pairing them with survivor volunteers who offer one-on-one emotional support and mentoring.

Throughout the day, booths designed by a diverse group of contemporary artists and community organizations will offer activities for a range of audiences, including karaoke, map making, and performance workshops. Large-scale acts on the main stage will include all-ages performances, including puppetry, dance, music, and poetry. These distinctive projects embody the Museum’s multidisciplinary and inclusive approach to contemporary art.

Booths and activities will be offered by Ei Arakawa and Shimon Minamikawa, Trisha Baga, Bed-Stuy Love Affair, Friends of the High Line, K8 Hardy and Ryan McNamara, J.T. Jobbagy Inc., the Meatpacking District Improvement Association, Lize Mogel, My Barbarian, Nari Ward, and the Whitney Education Community Advisory Network.

It features an integrated landscape combining meandering concrete pathways with naturalistic plantings.

Located thirty feet above street level on a 1930s freight railway, the High Line runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 34th Street in Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen and features an integrated landscape combining meandering concrete pathways with naturalistic plantings.

Situated between the High Line and the Hudson River in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, the new building (at 99 Gansevoort Street) will vastly increase the Whitney’s exhibition and programming space, offering the most expansive display ever of its unsurpassed collection of modern and contemporary American art.

Designed by architect Renzo Piano, the new building will include approximately 50,000 square feet of indoor galleries and 13,000 square feet of outdoor exhibition space and terraces facing the High Line. An expansive gallery for special exhibitions will be approximately 18,000 square feet in area, making it the largest column-free museum gallery in New York City. Additional exhibition space includes a lobby gallery (accessible free of charge), two floors for the permanent collection, and a special exhibitions gallery on the top floor.

The dramatically cantilevered entrance along Gansevoort Street will shelter an 8,500-square-foot outdoor plaza or “largo,” a public gathering space steps away from the southern entrance to the High Line. The building also will include an education center offering state-of-the-art classrooms; a multi-use black box theater for film, video, and performance with an adjacent outdoor gallery; a 170-seat theater with stunning views of the Hudson River; and a Works on Paper Study Center, Conservation Lab, and Library Reading Room. The classrooms, theater, and study center are all firsts for the Whitney.

A retail shop on the ground-floor level will contribute to the busy street life of the area. A ground-floor restaurant and top-floor cafe will be conceived and operated by renowned restaurateur Danny Meyer and his Union Square Hospitality Group, which operated +Untitled+, the restaurant in the Whitney’s Marcel Breuer building on the Upper East Side, until programming there concluded on October 19.

Mr. Piano’s design takes a strong and strikingly asymmetrical form—one that responds to the industrial character of the neighboring loft buildings and overhead railway while asserting a contemporary, sculptural presence. The upper stories of the building overlook the Hudson River on its west, and step back gracefully from the elevated High Line Park to its east.

The Whitney Block Party is free and open to the public—no reservations are required for Block Party events and performances.

Advance Museum admission tickets for May 2 are no longer available. A limited number of free admission tickets will be available in person at the Museum on Saturday, May 2, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Heidi Klum is the ideal spokesperson for ‘30 Years of INC’. In addition to being an international A-list celebrity and fashion icon, Heidi is a former INC model which makes her an even more compelling ambassador for the brand,” said Nancy Slavin, senior vice president of marketing for Macy’s Private Brands.

I’ve always loved INC for bringing runway fashion to the masses. Throughout the years, INC has been a forerunner in creating clothing that make women feel confident and sexy,” said Klum.

The 30th Anniversary of INC is a significant milestone, both for the brand itself and for Macy’s,” said Jeff Gennette, president of Macy’s Inc. “A Macy’s private brand, INC has grown over the past three decades into a real powerhouse, earning its place among the most popular brands in our overall portfolio and serving a very loyal fashion customer. We look forward to celebrating INC’s past, present and future with a lot of exciting activity over the course of 2015, starting with the introduction of Heidi Klum and Gabriel Aubry as our INC ambassadors for the anniversary year.

Customers will begin to see Klum and Aubry appear in advertising and direct mail beginning in February.

Dressier styles are priced from $79 to $99 and add a sophisticated edge to the collection. Standout styles include the Adalia, a lace up peep toe heel available in leopard calf hair or blue snakeskin-effect leather, and the Edith, a d’orsay pump with wraparound strap available in black leather, cordovan calf hair or leopard print calf hair.

The collection also features a large variety of booties and boots ideal for Fall’s cooler months. Heeled ankle boots like the sleek, pointed-toe Festa and sporty side-buckle Valerie range from $99 to $119, while taller styles like the Deidre riding boot and Cecile over-the-knee heeled boot are available from $129 to $199.

“We’re excited that the bar III customer can now dress in our brand from head to toe,” says Nancy Slavin, SVP Marketing at MMG. “The shoe collection is the perfect complement to our collection of ‘wear to work, wear out’ apparel and accessories, and we can’t wait to hear what our customers think.”

Bar III, the Impulse department’s anchor brand, first launched its women’s and men’s fashion collections in February 2010. The brand has since expanded to include bar III home, a collection of bedding and decorative pillows launched in August 2011, and bar III jewelry, launched in November 2011. Now, with the addition of women’s shoes to the bar III family, consumers can achieve a truly “head-to-toe” bar III look.
