We're Macy's. A legendary and iconic brand. A cultural touchstone. A name embedded in classic films, inseparable from Thanksgiving Day, woven into the fabric of the American dream. And yet we're more. Over the past 150+ years in business, Macy's has grown consistently and exponentially into the industry-leading company we are today. Our longstanding ability to anticipate changes in the marketplace and, through innovation, turn those changes to our advantage. In other words, this isn't a company that fears or avoids change. It's one that insists on and leverages change. That's what works for us and always has. Begging the question: does our embrace of innovation create stability, or does our stability permit greater innovation? Maybe when you join us, you can help us figure that out.
