Our progress and success are rooted in our customer-centric business model which embraces localization and strives to achieve a seamless omnichannel blending of in-store, online, and mobile customer experiences.

Our localization strategy, called "My Macy's”, has been an important stimulus to our growth. The “My Macy’s” initiative allows us to custom-tailor the merchandise assortment offered at each Macy’s store to meet the size needs, color preferences, climate conditions, and fashion tastes of customers in each unique geographic area. Building upon the localization concept, Macy’s recently launched the “My Macy’s 2.0” initiative which will put even greater emphasis on tailoring the merchandise assortment at special small-volume stores while placing extra emphasis on the omnichannel blended shopping experience.
