CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Macy’s, Inc. (NYSE:M) today announced that Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s are expanding same-day delivery service to nine additional markets, beginning this month, for products purchased online at macys.com, bloomingdales.com and on both brands’ mobile-enabled websites.
“When we piloted same-day delivery in eight markets initially last fall, we learned that our customers appreciate the additional option of having their purchase brought to their home or office in a matter of hours. It is an important part of our value proposition as an omnichannel retailer serving customers who shop our stores and websites whenever, wherever and however they prefer,” said R.B. Harrison, Macy’s, Inc. chief omnichannel officer. “Our ability to expand same-day delivery is rooted in local merchandise inventories at Macy’s stores, as well as a newly expanded delivery footprint of our partners at Deliv.”
