Sacramento, Modesto Macy's stores to get an upgrade this year

Macy's plans to expand its initiative to upgrade stores at two locations in Sacramento and one in Modesto.

SACRAMENTO, California — Macy’s announced Wednesday that their store at Sacramento's Downtown Commons (DOCO), the one inside Arden Fair Mall and the inside Modesto's Vintage Faire Mall as three of 100 stores included in its Growth150 initiative.

Fifty stores across the country were upgraded in 2018 and since the changes were well received, Macy's decided to make the changes to 100 more stores. Macy's said the improvements were based on feedback from the first 50 stores.

John Harper, chief stores officer at Macy’s, said people will see an improvement in the stores and in how employees work with each other. He said the changes will help shoppers have a better experience while shopping.

“We are excited to continue to bring new, exciting and fresh experiences to these stores," Harper said.

All changes should be completed before November, a spokesperson for Macy's Emily Workman said.

The stores that are getting improvements will have physical changes, technological changes and improved customer service:

Physical Upgrades

If you feel like Macy's has looked the same for the last 20 years, they are trying to improve the look so it's more modern with new lights, renovated restrooms and improved fitting rooms.

Macy's said that some of the stores will move around departments and products to better suit the shopping experience for the customers.

Most of the updated stores will now offer food and beverage options. These stores will also have added or expanded furniture and mattress departments.

A few of the stores have also added Backstage, Macy’s low-budget concept. This has already been added to the downtown Sacramento location.

New Technology

The company also made technology enhancements to improve how customers shop with virtual reality furniture shopping, full-service shopping in the shoe department and better radio communications for staff. These improvements are meant to help cut the time people wait in Macy's in half.

Improved Customer Service and Experience

Macy's customers can also book a styling appointment with a Macy’s Personal Stylist for free according to the company's press release. The stylist can help people shop for any product in the store that fits their personal, style, budget and need.

Not all stores will have the same feature but here are some of the changes made in stores across the U.S.:
