Last Sunday, I had the opportunity to check out Macy’s Backstage at Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax, Virginia. Macy’s Backstage is Macy’s new outlet store that offers fashion-loving customers another way to shop at Macy’s store by providing a store-within-store shopping experience featuring significant savings on fabulous and frugal finds.
Fair Oaks Mall is the second location in Virginia to offer a “Backstage” experience. (There are currently 70 Macy’s Backstage locations across the United States.)
I was surprised to see how many deals and steals this store offered shoppers – house decor, kids toys, luggage, kids clothes, men’s clothes, women’s clothes, and shoes for everyone. The store reminded me of a TJ Maxx and HomeGoods combined.
I found the sales associates, known as the Backstage Crew, to be very helpful, friendly and cheery. There are several convenient amenities like time-saving mobile check-out stations and three-way mirror installations in the fitting rooms. Shoppers can use their Macy’s credit card and earn and redeem Star Rewards at Backstage locations, creating a seamless experience for those shopping at both Macy’s distinct department and outlet store brands.
“Backstage’s focus on value and newness guarantees that with each visit, shoppers will find an amazingly-priced assortment of recognizable brands and trends. Frequent deliveries ensure there is always a new reason to come in and shop,” Macy’s Senior VP Michelle Israel stated.
I totally agree with her statement. I was given a gift card to take with me on my visit and between Ava and Tommy, we made out like bandits from our little shopping spree!
I would definitely come back to Macy’s Backstage to see what their latest and greatest is in the store. I wished I had more time to peruse the home decor aisle, but I had a couple of antsy shopping partners with me. 😉 Thanks for hosting us Macy’s!
