The teen and tween fashion accessories brand is teaming up with Macy’s to open shop-in-store locations in more than 20 Macy’s locations nationwide. The assortment will feature hair accessories, jewelry and cosmetics and seasonal items for holiday parties and celebrations
Beginning this month, shoppers will have access to Claire’s products in Macy’s flagships within key markets, including New York City (Herald Square); Garden City, N.Y. (Roosevelt Field); Costa Mesa, Calif. (South Coast Plaza); San Francisco; Union Square in San Francisco; Miami (Dadeland Mall and Aventura Mall); Atlanta (Lenox Square); and Honolulu (Ala Moana). The assortment will also be available in Macy’s stores in Orlando and Las Vegas.
“Macy’s and Claire’s are two iconic brands in fashion with a longstanding commitment to being destinations for inspirational and accessible style for generations of consumers,” stated Ryan Vero, CEO, Claire’s. “We help celebrate special moments, and with this partnership, we are combining our brand power to reach new customers and serve them with the latest on-trend accessories in time for the holiday shopping season and beyond.”
“Macy’s is the ultimate destination for trends and fashion,” said Stephen Moore, Macy’s senior VP of merchandising. "We are thrilled to partner with Claire’s to expand our jewelry and accessories assortment and give our customers even more ways to own their style.”
