Macy’s gets $400 million facelift… for your FEET!

13 Aug

Now the world’s largest department store will also have the world’s largest shoe department

According to WWD, Macy’s Herald Square recently unveiled a major portion of its new shoe department, which they’re calling “the largest shoe floor in the world.” Upon completion, the shoe department will reportedly hold 280,000 pairs of shoes, a 50% increase from what it previously held. To create a total of 63,000 square feet of selling space, Macy’s is converting a large portion of their storage space into selling space.

The floor will be arranged into categories which include big brands like Michael Kors, more affordable brands like Nine West, fashion-forward brands such as Rachel Roy, designer shoes such as Stuart Weitzman and athletic shoes and comfort brands.

Other new amenities include iPods for sales associates to make non-cash transactions and ease communication with the stock room. Associates will be able to send photos of the requested shoes and sizes; guess that means no more associates disappearing to the back to find your size?
