PERSONAL SHOPPER CANDICE WARD LEADS A TEAM OF 11 FASHION EXPERTS THROUGH 11 FLOORS AT THE ICONIC NYC FLAGSHIP THAT SEES OVER 250,000 SHOPPERS ON BLACK FRIDAY ALONE

New York, NY – November 24, 2016 – The personal shoppers from My Stylist @ Macy’s will be on the frontlines of the holiday shopping season when the doors to Macy’s stores across the country open at 5PM on Thanksgiving Day, as tens of thousands of bargain-hunters and style-seekers join in the shopping frenzy that is Black Friday. At the Herald Square flagship, located between the two most trafficked retail corners in the world – 34th Street and Broadway, and 34th Street and Seventh Avenue , the iconic store sees over 250,000 shoppers in one day.

Candice Ward, the District Regional Director for My Stylist at Macy’s Herald Square, the retailer’s iconic New York City flagship, says “There is no greater rush in retail than to see the doors open and have thousands upon thousands of holiday shoppers streaming in looking for the best deals of the season.

It is an experience like no other to see shoppers from the five boroughs and as far away as China, Australia, the Middle East and the U.K. all coming to share in the official start of the holiday shopping season with us.”

She continues, “As a personal shopper at the World’s Largest Store, I am on stand-by to help shoppers find exactly what they are looking for, and in a store that is over 1 million square-feet of selling space with millions of SKU’s (stock keeping unit) on 11 selling floors, navigating our flagship can prove to be daunting, especially with the crowds that we annually see but my team and I are up for the task. “

This holiday season, shoppers can treat themselves to a personal shopper, once a service reserved for celebrities or the elite, now available to anyone who is short on time and needs less stress when the holiday shopping season officially begins on Black Friday. Candice adds, “We know the store inside and out, and can pinpoint exactly where a particular dress or shirt may be. With My Stylist at Macy’s, customers can save time and money while they take the stress out of shopping this holiday season, the service is fun, fast and free.”

The complimentary service offers shoppers the latest trends in fashion and accessories, the perfect look for any occasion, as well as, offering corporate sales services for work-related gifting. Extending savings to all, corporate discounts can apply based on volume purchases where available.

Whether it is hunting for holiday gifts, packing for an extended business trip or treating oneself to a brand new seasonal wardrobe, the personalized service by each stylist enhances the shopping experience. The beauty of the service is that there is never a minimum required, only the desire to shop for the best brands and latest looks in fashion, accessories and home.
