Macy’s and Tailored Brands Inc. Partnership Wind Down Operations

CINCINNATI & FREMONT, Calif., 2017-May-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — Macy’s, Inc. (NYSE:M) and Tailored Brands, Inc. (NYSE:TLRD) today (May 3, 2017) announced their joint plan to wind down operations under the tuxedo rental license agreement Macy’s, Inc. had established with Men’s Wearhouse on June 9, 2015.

“Macy’s is always looking for new partnerships that benefit both parties, as well as our customers, and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to collaborate with Tailored Brands. While the partnership did not produce the level of sales we expected, we will continue to benefit from the insights we gathered,” said Tim Baxter, chief merchandising officer at Macy’s, Inc. “Both Macy’s and Tailored Brands remain committed to putting our customers first, and we plan to fulfill customer orders and ensure a positive customer experience as we wind down the shops.”

“Innovating new business models is an important catalyst for long-term growth and we saw the partnership with Macy’s as an opportune way to expand our leadership in the tuxedo rental market,” said Tailored Brands’ CEO Doug Ewert. “Unfortunately, the initiative did not generate the revenue that both companies had envisioned. We believe it is in the best interest of our company and our shareholders to wind down the partnership.”

The Tuxedo Shops at Macy’s will continue to take new reservations until June 1, 2017, with operations winding down by July 14, 2017. All customers with outstanding rentals after this period will be contacted and offered the option of transferring their reservation to a nearby Men’s Wearhouse or Jos. A. Bank store to ensure complete customer satisfaction for all events.

“We are happy to have found such a natural partner in Garrett Brands and are confident they will be great stewards of the Frango brand,” said Tim Baxter, chief merchandising officer at Macy’s, Inc. “We will continue to offer Macy’s customers the Frango products they love online and at Macy’s stores in Chicago, Seattle and across the country.

NEW YORK, 2016-Sep-20 — /EPR Retail News/ — This fall, Macy’s stores nationwide will be the center of happiness, as the retailer invites customers to #gethappy through a multifaceted entertainment collaboration with DreamWorks Animation, celebrating the upcoming animated feature film Trolls. Before debuting in U.S. theaters on Friday, Nov. 4, Trolls will take over Macy’s with a host of exclusive and Trolls-inspired products across all categories, promotional efforts, as well as inclusion within Macy’s signature national fashion and iconic holiday events, among other exciting activations that will create magical experiences for customers.

“We can’t wait to kick-off Macy’s hair-raising collaboration with DreamWorks Animation for the launch of the animated feature film Trolls,” said Tim Baxter, Macy’s chief merchandising officer. “This collaboration truly exemplifies our ability to create unique experiences for Macy’s shoppers as we incorporate Trolls exclusive product across apparel, accessories, cosmetics and home, and punctuate the product with in-store celebrations, visual merchandising, advertising and signature entertainment events. This fall, Macy’s stores will be the hub of Trollsfun and happiness.”

“The world of DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls is a unique and vibrant celebration of color, texture and personality, and Macy’s has done an outstanding job of bringing it to life across categories and signature events,” said Jim Fielding, DreamWorks Animation. “From the exclusive products to fabulous in-store events and innovative promotional efforts, Macy’s will be at the heart of Trolls happiness this fall. We can’t wait to celebrate with Macy’s shoppers and see them add a little extra sparkle to their lives.”

The Trolls at Macy’s campaign was previewed last week at Macy’s Presents Fashion’s Front Row, the company’s fashion and music kickoff to New York Fashion Week™. Live from the stage at The Theater at Madison Square Garden®, Fashion’s Front Row featured the world premiere of Betsey Johnson xox Trolls, an exclusive collection inspired by the DreamWorks Animation feature. The show, hosted by E!’s Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, featured sensational fashion presentations of the fall season’s must-have looks and musical performances by Ariana Grande and Flo Rida. The show aired nationwide on E! last week and is now available to stream at eonline.com.

Beginning in mid-September, Macy’s is offering a vibrant assortment of Trolls-themed product that includes flashy clothing, hair-raising accessories, whimsical housewares, and cheerful tech items. Pajama sets are adorned with hearts, rainbows, and flourishes certain to produce sweet dreams. T-shirts, sweaters and jackets are emblazoned with witty sayings and puns, in addition to fanciful imagery and playful color combinations. The iconic Troll hair finds itself on accessories galore, with bags, shoes, rings, hats, and even pens embellished with the brightly-hued manes. Macy’s has also tapped legendary fashion designer Betsey Johnson, an originator of the bold, over-the-top, exuberant fashion aesthetic, to create Betsey Johnson xox Trolls. The larger-than-life collection offers head-to-toe Trolls glamour with flamboyant jewelry, sleepwear, handbags and fabulous accoutrements, including mugs, pins, notebooks, and even umbrellas! The range of apparel and accessories is blissfully cheeky, boasting brilliant colors, dazzling sparkle and fun silhouettes, all rendered beautifully for a collection that will leave fashion lovers smiling with glee.

In late September, the whimsy of DreamWorks’ Trolls will be showcased at select stores nationwide with playful window and in-store displays, including a massive visual presentation at Macy’s flagship store at Herald Square inNew York City. The iconic Macy’s bag-shaped sign on the 34th Street corner of the world-famous department store will feature a hair-raising takeover by the rambunctious Trolls characters, who will be seen peeking out from inside the bag, as well as adorning the exterior. This marks the first time that the signature store sign has been used to promote a partnership of this kind.

Promotional support for Trolls at Macy’s will include a comprehensive advertising campaign featuring print/outdoor, social, digital, in-store and online marketing. From Trolls co-branded shopping bags to an online hub at macys.com/Trolls, where shoppers can browse and shop the Trolls-inspired assortment, get behind-the-scenes content, and more, Macy’s will invite customers to #gethappy this fall via a variety of touch points. The broadcast campaign will see Macy’s and Trolls taking to the airwaves in mid-October, when a combination animated and live action television spot debuts. Helmed by famed music video director Nigel Dick, the commercial features Macy’s exclusive Trolls-inspired fashions in a lively commercial focused around music and dance.

Macy’s will also bring a special part of beloved Trolls character, Poppy, to life, producing a $750,000 emerald and diamond replica of her Celebration Crown. The one-of-a-kind piece, created by Rare Featuring Gemfields, contains 51 carats of Zambian emeralds and 10 carats of diamonds, all set in 18 karat gold. The crown, available for purchase by appointment and on view from Oct. 3 through Oct. 16 at Macy’s Herald Square in New York City, captures the spirit and wonder of the film in a celebration of joy and happiness. For more information on Poppy’s Celebration Crown, visit macys.com/trollscrown.

As the frenzy of the film’s release kicks into high gear, Macy’s associates nationwide will also have the opportunity to #gethappy and show their Trolls colors as they don colorful wigs and apparel for Macy’s Trolls day on Saturday, Nov. 5, celebrating the film’s release weekend.

Rounding out the over-the-top happiness, Trolls will take to the skies of New York City, as the characters debut a new giant helium balloon in the 90th Anniversary Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. Taking flight in the annual spectacle on Thursday, Nov. 24, the new Trolls giant balloon will be a multi-character spectacle featuring Poppy, Branch and Guy Diamond hitching a ride down the streets of Manhattan on Caterbus. As it makes its way down the route, the Trolls giant character balloon is sure to delight the more than 3.5 million spectators lining the streets and more than 50 million viewers tuned in nationwide to NBC-TV for the 90th anniversary celebration; which airs in all time zones from 9 a.m. – Noon.
