Macy's to Open Its First Discount Stores

If you're anything like us, you can't get enough of Nordstrom Rack and Barneys Warehouse—the discount spin-offs of their luxury department store counterparts. Well, it appears Macy's is the next retailer to join the club. As Fashionista pointed out, Macy's announced today its plans for Macy's Backstage, an off-price business that will stock merchandise across all categories at steep discounts. While the department store already carries clearance items, this new concept promises to offer a fantastic customer experience, where shoppers will have access to Wi-Fi, spacious fitting rooms, and on-site cafés, along with the well-curated redlined merchandise.

The first four "pilot stores" will open in New York this fall. Macy's plans to test the shops before introducing them to other markets.
