Disclosure: This article is written on behalf of Macy’s and I was given a gift card to shop in order to share this experience; however, all opinions are 100% mine.
Macy’s Backstage Brings Great Deals
Let me start out by stating that I very rarely go shopping for myself, I have seriously been wearing some of the same clothes for over 20 years. It’s hard for me to part with old clothes and I am always spending money on my growing children. However, I have two weddings this summer, so it’s hard to avoid shopping. I love outlet shopping, so when I was told that Macy’s opened an outlet store right inside it’s department store- I was really excited to search for deals and that’s exactly what I found!
You must know that the merchandise is not clearance, but rather a combination of Macy current season overstocks and deals from vendors. Shoppers should expect great savings on fashion, shoes, apparel, cosmetics, gifts, active wear and jewelry, plus children’s apparel, shoes and toys. There are ladies plus sizes and a large home goods area, with bedding, picture frames, framed art, lamps, and occasional pieces.
Backstage has its own buyers so in addition to Macy’s brands, there are apparel and accessory brands that are not currently carried at the full-line department store. Almost everything in the store is at least half of its original retail price and the tags reflect the original price in most cases.
Macy’s welcomes Scranton’s first Macy’s Backstage to its location in Viewmont Mall on Saturday June 16th. Macy’s Backstage offers fashion-loving customers another way to shop at their favorite store by providing a store-within-store shopping experience featuring significant savings on fabulous finds. The new outlet store will have approximately 10,300 sqft of dedicated retail space and will live on the first level inside the full-line Macy’s. The grand opening will be celebrated with giveaways for the first 200 customers and special events throughout the day.
What is Macy’s Backstage?
Macy’s Backstage is operated by its own buying team who scour the world to find the most fabulous product at the best prices. This structure allows Backstage to deliver a constantly changing assortment of on-trend merchandise at 20 to 80 percent off traditional department store prices and encourages customers to return often to find new treasures. The wide selection will include fresh product from both new and renowned brands. The outlet store will also carry apparel and accessory brands not currently available at full-line Macy’s, and each Backstage location is specially curated to deliver the perfect style for each community it serves.
Helpful sales associates known as the Backstage Crew are available, as well as convenient amenities like time-saving mobile check-out stations and three-way mirror installations in the fitting rooms. Let me tell you, these sales associates are so helpful. I had a hard time trying to put together accessories and they were great in helping me find everything that I needed. I actually found this awesome skirt that I plan on wearing as a dress for a wedding, but I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off. The sales associates helped me find the right jewelry to make it work!
