STORY at Macy’s, the ever-changing, narrative-driven retail concept inside 36 Macy’s stores nationwide, has unveiled its latest theme: “Feel Good.” From January 16 through April 11, 2020, Feel Good STORY brings a fresh focus on wellness. Feel Good STORY leverages the expertise of award-winning fitness and wellness media platform, Well+Good, to help customers explore ways to feel balanced, energized, and nourished.
Inside Feel Good STORY at Macy’s
The wellness-focused retail narrative invites discovery through three curated spaces. Each introduces merchandise and experiences to help customers feel balanced, energized and nourished.
STORY’s Balanced section is all about mindfulness and invites guests to pause for a complimentary meditation in partnership with Calm, the number one app for sleep, meditation, and relaxation.
To feel Energized, customers are invited to explore something new, from weighted arm bangles by Bala to an in-store barre fitness class.
Healthy habits are the focus of the Nourished area, which provides new takes on snacking from Dada Daily and alcohol-free elixirs by Seedlip.
Editor-Approved Tips and Tricks
Editor-approved intel from Well+Good adds to the customer experience. For example, shoppers will discover that to get a good night’s sleep, editors suggest “cooling down your bedroom,” alongside the dodow, a glowing timer that helps users fall asleep. Additional tips throughout the space cover topics like the benefits of dark chocolate, relaxation techniques and staying hydrated.
Partnering with STORY at Macy's allows us to share our rigorously researched editorial content in a new and exciting way, giving people in-person tips to feel more Balanced, Energized and Nourished.
