“Black Friday is a day dedicated to finding the best deals,” said Peter
Sachse, Macy’s chief stores officer. “For the first time last year, Macy’s
stores nationwide opened at midnight and our customers loved getting a head
start on their holiday shopping. Based on their enthusiastic response, we plan
to repeat it again this year. We’ve also created a new tool to help customers
plan their shopping strategy with an enhancement to Macy's mobile app that
will identify and locate specials throughout each store on Black Friday.”

Macy’s Mobile App – Black Friday Feature
New this year, an iOS-only Black Friday enhancement to Macy’s official mobile
app will offer customers a digital tool to help plan their shopping strategy
in advance. Beginning Nov. 15, Macy’s customers will be able to view Black
Friday specials on their mobile device, create personal shopping lists they
can edit and share with friends, and receive push notifications that will
offer details on previously unadvertised specials. In addition, the new Black
Friday feature on Macy’s mobile app will allow customers to browse Black
Friday specials specific to each Macy’s, helping them navigate their local
store by sending the department name and floor for each special by store
location. This enhancement will make Black Friday more productive for Macy’s
customers by allowing them to create a shopping strategy before setting foot
in the store. The new Black Friday feature, created through a partnership with
eBay Inc., will be available for iOS devices and can be used by downloading
the Macy’s App at the Apple App store.

In addition to great Macy’s specials and technology that help customers
navigate Black Friday deals, MAC Cosmetics will exclusively preview its new
“Taste Temptation” collection at Macy’s MAC Cosmetics counters from midnight
until 4 a.m. on Black Friday. Customers can shop the collection and have a MAC
artist bring out their nocturnal instincts by creating a one-of-a-kind “Taste
Temptation” makeup look. Following this exclusive preview at Macy’s, the
collection will not be available until Dec. 13.
