“Our customers are excited about the Macy’s Backstage shopping experience,” said Michelle Israel, Macy’s Senior Vice President of Off Price. “Macy’s Backstage was designed to bring great deals and the fun of the hunt into our existing Macy’s locations. 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.” 

 

Seven free-standing Backstage stores opened in the Northeast and San Antonio, TX in 2015 and 2016.

There are currently 60 Macy’s Backstage locations across the United States. 

 

Macy’s Backstage is operated by its own buying team who scour the world to find the most fabulous product at the best prices. This structure allows Backstage to deliver a constantly changing assortment of on-trend merchandise at 20 to 80 percent off traditional department store prices and encourages customers to return often to find new treasures. The wide selection will include fresh product from both new and renowned brands. The outlet store will also carry apparel and accessory brands not currently available at full-line Macy’s, and each Backstage location is specially curated to deliver the perfect style for each community it serves.

About Boulevard Mall
Boulevard Mall is a 1.2-million square-foot retail destination and one of Las Vegas’ most iconic shopping centers. Originally built in 1965, the mall features anchors such as Macy’s, Sears, Marshalls, JCPenney and Old Navy, in addition to many other tenants. Boulevard Mall was recently acquired by Sansone Companies, who will be conducting a $25-million update on the property to be completed by 2015.

Sansone Companies to Redevelop Vegas’ Iconic Boulevard Mall

SANSONE COMPANIES TO REDEVELOP ICONIC BOULEVARD MALL TO PREMIER
SHOPPING, DINING AND ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT

Developer to revitalize shopping center and surrounding Maryland Parkway area

Boulevard Mall

The Boulevard Mall, one of Las Vegas’ most iconic shopping centers of the mid-1960s through 80s, will be restored to its former glory, marking its first major renovation in more than two decades. Sansone Companies, a commercial real estate company, acquired the property in December 2013 for $54.5 million and is looking at the renovation of the Boulevard as a catalyst in the overall redevelopment effort of the Maryland Parkway corridor.

Officially approved in today’s Planning Commission meeting, construction on the 1.2-million square-foot property will commence in mid-2014. Sansone plans to invest approximately $23 to $25 million in the mall’s redevelopment, which will include a new line-up of stores, restaurants and entertainment venues; redesigned façade and landscape; and enhancements to surrounding areas on Maryland Parkway. The changes will take place in several phases and be completed by 2015.

“The Boulevard Mall is renowned in the Las Vegas community but is in need of major updates to restore its relevancy for today’s consumer shopping experience,” said Roland Sansone, Founder of Sansone Companies. “When we took ownership of the property, we not only saw it as an opportunity to breathe new life into the mall, but to Maryland Parkway as well.”

Originally built in 1965, The Boulevard currently features anchors including Macy’s, Sears, Marshalls, JCPenney and Old Navy, in addition to many other tenants.

The improvements to the shopping center will include:

  • New Tenants – The Boulevard Mall will announce several new stores, restaurants and family entertainment venues to create a variety of experiences for Las Vegas locals and visitors.
  • Farmers Market – The area of the existing south driveway will be transformed into a thriving farmers market featuring approximately 70 vendors. A large children’s playground will also be installed within the space.
  • Valet Parking – Once renovations are complete, The Boulevard will feature valet parking for added convenience.
  • Free Wi-Fi – The Boulevard Mall will now offer complimentary Wi-Fi service for all visitors.
  • Food Court Upgrade – The current food court space will see the addition of several new tenants, as well the installation of four 80-inch plasma televisions broadcasting sports and news.
  • Redesigned Exterior – A key component of The Boulevard Mall revitalization will be a brand new façade that faces Maryland Parkway and its corridor. There will be a redesigned entrance including new storefronts, awnings and landscaping, in addition to new modern colors on the exterior.

The Boulevard Mall will remain open for business during construction. The center’s hours of operations are Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., and Sunday, noon – 7 p.m.

Macy’s Believe Campaign Makes Dreams Come True

Macy’s Believe Campaign Makes Dreams Come True

 

Remember all those years you wrote your letters to Santa?  There was something special about writing out exactly what you were hoping to receive and putting it in the mail. This classic holiday tradition takes on even more meaning when you realize that a letter to Santa can help raise $1 million for Make-A-Wish.

The Macy’s Believe Campaign makes it easy as 1-2-3 for you to help the dreams of children with life-threatening medical conditions come true:

1.   Write a letter to Santa.

2. Drop off your letter in a stamped envelope addressed to Santa at the North Pole by December 24th at the Believe station Santa mailbox at any Macy’s store.

3. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish up to $1 million. With your help and Macy’s donation, that can add up to literally hundreds of children’s wishes come true.

On December 6, National Believe Day, Macy’s will help Make-A-Wish grant more than 60 wishes across the country for Wishes Across America.  In Las Vegas the local Make-A-Wish chapter will host a special fashion show highlighting Believe Day at Fashion Show Mall, where a special wish will be granted. That same evening, “Yes, Virginia” will air on CBS at 8:30 pm ET.  This holiday classic reminds all of us that miracles do come true.

Macy’s Believe campaign launching on November 8

This holiday season, Macy’s will reprise its annual Believe campaign, bringing tidings of joy and goodwill to customers nationwide and lending support to Make-A-Wish. As in previous years, Macy’s invites believers of all ages to bring their letters to Santa to Macy’s at the Fashion Show Mall or Galleria Mall Henderson locations, and for each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million. The campaign runs now through December 24 (Christmas Eve). For more details visit: www.macys.com/believe.

“SantaLand Diaries” At Onyx Theater Benefits Golden Rainbow Dec. 1 – 4

“SANTALAND DIARIES” AT ONYX THEATER BENEFITS GOLDEN RAINBOW DEC. 1 – 4

“SantaLand Diaries” debuts at Onyx Theater (953 East Sahara) for eight exclusive performances this December. A portion of the proceeds from opening weekend, Thursday, Dec. 1 – Sunday, Dec. 4, benefit Golden Rainbow.

 

SantaLand Diaries” began as an essay by writer David Sedaris. It is a true and humorous account of Sedaris’ stint working as a Christmas elf in “SantaLand” at Macy’s department store. Sedaris first read his essay on National Public Radio in 1992. The piece was well-received and served as his first major break. In 1996, Sedaris’ essay was modified into a one-man, one-act play by actor and director Joe Mantello. Since its opening, the adaptation has become a seasonal staple of local theatre.

 

Directed by Las Vegas CityLife’s Christopher Kenney, the holiday favorite stars local performer Jamie Morris. Tickets are $20 and available at the Onyx Theater box office. Shows begin at 8 p.m. Thursday – Saturday and at 5 p.m. on Sunday. For more information on “SantaLand Diaries” and for a complete schedule of performances, visit www.onyxtheatre.com.
