Congratulations go to Federated Department Stores (Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s) for receiving the “VM+SD/Peter Glen Retailer of the Year” award at the International Design Conference in Chicago, September 21-23.
Honored as a “master of department store reinvention”, Federated embraces change and is determined to prove the vitality of the department store concept. They are currently striving to establish the country’s first national department store brand. This includes converting all of its regional name plates (Bon Marche, Burdines and Lazarus, Goldsmith’s, Rich’s) to the Macy’s brand, which is now over 400 stores strong. The recently approved $17 billion acquisition of the May Co. brands (Foley’s, Filene’s, FamousBarr, Kaufmonn’s, Marshall Fields, Lord & Taylor) adds approximately 500 locations.
Throughout it all, Federated continues to evolve, always staying focused on the customer, while looking for ways to improve. It is this innovative, forward thinking that helped Federated earn this award.
At TA, we’re proud to be a part of the Federated team, providing technology design for over 60 projects.
Congratulations Federated, on winning “Retailer of the Year” – Way to Go!
