Last week I was given the pleasure of taking a private backstage tour of the new Macy's Backstage in the Altamonte mall. Macy's Backstage provides shoppers with a separate outlet-style shopping experience inside the original Macy's department store. Located on the 2nd floor, Macy's Backstage has brands that you wouldn't find in Macy's.
The new store offers trend boards to keep shoppers up-to-date on what's trending in fashion, free wireless internet, and even charging stations for your phones. Staff reported that, "what's on the floor is it. Once it sells, there's isn't another one in stock". Now that's what I call the ultimate shopping experience. You get exclusive items when you purchase from Macy's Backstage.
In addition to clothes and shoes, the store even covers household goods such as bed comforters, items for your pets and even kids toys! I was able to score a pair of jeans retailed at $50 for $19.99! Not to mention snagging these amazing sandals at 50% off retail price! What a great deal, huh? Merchandise in the store should be 20-80% off the price at other department stores.
I fell in love with the layout of the store. Everything is at eye-level and gives you a feel of wanting to take a peak at what they have to offer in each section. With an intimate feel, Macy's Backstage makes you want to keep coming back for more.
The store is currently in soft-opening mode right now with an official grand opening on May 6, 2017. For the grand opening, Macy’s will be giving away $20 gift cards to the first 100 customers.
When I went back for the soft opening, I couldn't believe my eyes! The store was totally different (and more organized :)) than when I first saw it. Everything was placed exactly where it should be and the staff was hard at work. It was refreshing to see that all the staff were very knowledgeable and were seen assisting customers and helping other staff around the store.
The store hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
Overall, my experience with the Macy's backstage store was great. I can't wait to go back and see what new items they have in store.
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post and get a chance to attend the Macy's backstage grand opening. Hope to see you there!
