Store History Federated Department stores was born on March 1929 through the combinaLon of Abraham & Straus of Brooklyn, Filene's of Boston, F&R Lazarus & Co. of Columbus, OH and Bloomingdale's of New York. As the company emerged from the Great Depression and World War II, Federated would experience signiﬁcant growth. New shopping malls began to sprout across the country beginning in the 1960s and these centers would greatly expand Federated sales as it became anchor tenants in the malls. Federated acquired May Department Stores in 2005. In September 2006, 400 former May stores around the country converted their names to Macy's. These regional stores include Marshall Field's, Filene's, Hecht's/Strawbridge's, Kaufmann's and Robinsons-‐May.

RaLonale Macy’s recent campaigns have focused on their
impulse designer lines but have yet to venture into the Junior market. We believe this could be something new for Macy’s. Macy’s already has a good teen customer base and an impulse line will only make it stronger. We will start the year out with a prom season pop up shop. This is to get more of the teen market that may want a designer garment but can’t aﬀord the designer price. Bringing Betsey Johnson, a popular designer among teens into the store will bring more buzz and grab those girls who may be looking for dresses elsewhere.
