NEW YORK -- November 19, 2012

Beginning tomorrow, Macy’s (NYSE:M) customers may faint from excitement over
the retailer’s new Black Friday commercial featuring superstar Justin Bieber.
The TV spot’s humorous storyline shows what happens when people come in
contact with Bieber’s well-known wink. Scheduled to break on television on
Tuesday, Nov. 20, the commercial reminds customers to shop Macy’s starting at
12 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23 (midnight Thanksgiving night) for the best deals on
gifts for everyone on their list.

“Justin Bieber is one of Macy’s superstar talents with a great sense of humor,
and he was a hit in last year’s Black Friday commercial,” said Martine
Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “We’re excited to share another fun
look at fans’ extreme reaction to seeing Justin in store as he helps get the
message out to shop early at Macy’s for great deals on the most desirable
gifts this holiday season.”

Reinforcing that America’s Department Store is Bieber’s favorite spot to shop
on Black Friday, Macy’s “Wink, Nod, Smile” continues the retailer’s fall
sitcom-themed TV concept starring new Macy’s Herald Square store manager
Harold (Matt Oberg) and visual merchandiser Carolina (Chloe Wepper), as they
remind Bieber what happened on Black Friday last year. While in the store,
Bieber offered his classic “wink” to unsuspecting fans who swooned in the
megastar’s presence. In this year’s spot, Harold and Carolina fall prey to the
effects of an accidental “wink” when Bieber gets something in his eye.

Macy’s Facebook fans got a first look at the spot on Sunday, Nov. 18. Today,
the spot is previewed online with a takeover of YouTube’s home page. The
“Wink, Nod, Smile” spot will break on television November 20.

In addition to more than 200 specials, customers who purchase a large spray
bottle of Justin Bieber’s fragrance “Girlfriend” will receive a quilted heart
bag, while supplies last. Plus, for every Justin Bieber fragrance purchase on
Black Friday, Macy’s will donate $2 to Make-A-Wish^®, up to $100,000.
