Macy's returns to the Big Easy


CINCINNATI Macy's announced today that it is returning to the New Orleans market with the reopening of a 188,000 square-foot store in Esplanade and the opening of a new 228,000 square-foot store at Lakeside in November 2008.

"Returning to the New Orleans market has been a top priority for us," said Ed Holman, chairman and ceo of Macy's South, the division responsible for the Louisiana market. "We're looking forward to opening both stores and once again being a part of the vibrant, re-energized and evolving New Orleans community. We are dedicated to offering the latest in fashion and trend merchandise with outstanding customer service."

The renovated Esplanade store, located in Kenner, will be a two-level store offering a range of apparel and accessories for men, women and children, along with selected products for the home.

Groundbreaking for the Lakeside store, located in Jefferson Parish, is planned for early November 2007. The three-level store will feature apparel for men, women and children as well as a complete offering of merchandise for the home.

Prior to Hurricane Katrina, Macy's operated two stores in the New Orleans market - at Esplanade, which originally opened in 1986, and a store at New Orleans Centre, which will not reopen.
