"I have been in retail since I was fifteen years old, and it was not until I came to Macy`s Florida that I gained the knowledge and training to really be successful in business. I had always heard that if you were going to work in retail you should work here. I stayed because now I know why it is the best place to work."
Danielle - Assistant Store Manager
Macy`s Florida focuses on customers in a single, unique state. We embrace and reflect Florida`s unique sense of style and fashion through 63 stores up and down the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts, as well as in central regions of the state.
Macy`s Florida`s largest store and office headquarters are located in downtown Miami, one of the hottest (and we`re not just talking temperature) and most culturally diverse cities in the country. Our Dadeland flagship store is widely recognized as one of the best suburban department stores in America. Closely integrated with our stores is the macys.com e-commerce site.
Our customers are Floridians of multiple dimensions -- full-time residents employed in the state`s fast-growing economy ... snowbirds seeking sun and warmth when it is cold up north ... new immigrants from across Latin America and around the world ... tourists thirsty for entertainment experiences ... retirees relocating to enjoy the slower pace of life near the beach.
As a division of Federated Department Stores, Inc., Macy`s Florida is supported by its own organization, including sales and sales support, store management and regional operations, buying, planning, loss prevention, marketing, visual merchandising and human resources. We also are an integral component of the nationwide Macy`s team. We closely coordinate our efforts with Federated`s other Macy`s regional store divisions - Macy`s Central (based in Atlanta), Macy`s East (New York), Macy`s Northwest (Seattle) and Macy`s West (San Francisco) - to bring fashion and affordable luxury to our customers across America.
You`ll find our stores in the best retail locations. They provide interesting and distinctive merchandise assortments, outstanding shopping experiences, and prices that deliver value to our customers.
As Macy`s, our actions are guided by a distinctive philosophy for doing business. We take good care of our customers ... develop and respect our employees as individuals ... work together as a team ... support our communities ... hold ourselves to a high ethical standard ... and take pride in generating outstanding results.
Community service and diversity are important tenants of our culture. We give back through charitable contributions, employee volunteerism (including fun and worthwhile projects in which everyone can participate), and event sponsorships. Our stores mirror the diverse marketplace they serve. Thus, we are an inclusive company that embraces differing points of view, provides opportunity for everyone to succeed, and encourages work/life balance. This helps us to develop leaders while also achieving a high level of success.
