Macy's Growth Will Be Through Merchandising
The appointment of Jeff Gennette as president of Macy's is a giant step in the right direction for the department store industry. Macy's has always been a great merchandising organization and Mr. Gennette continues that legacy. It's through merchandise that the customer experiences Macy's mission to offer value, fashion and service. The future growth of retailing in general, and Macy's in particular, depends on how well an organization merchandises its offering across various channels of distribution.
