“Our customers are excited about the Macy’s Backstage shopping experience,” said Michelle Israel, Macy’s Senior Vice President of Off Price. “Macy’s Backstage Lakeside was designed to bring great deals and the fun of the hunt into our existing Lakeside location.  If you’re looking for a fashion update, a last-minute gift, or a special treat for yourself, your home, or your pet, we have you covered. Backstage’s focus on value and newness guarantees that with each visit, shoppers will find an amazingly-priced assortment of recognizable brands and trends.  Frequent deliveries ensure there is always a new reason to come in and shop.”

Macy’s has successfully expanded its on-mall, off-price business to 165 new locations within Macy’s stores, allowing customers to shop both merchandise offerings in one trip to their local mall.

In 2019, as one of its five strategic initiatives, Macy’s will expand Backstage to 50 more Macy’s stores.
