Macy’s is testing mini-Best Buys in select stores

Shopper's At Macy's Ahead of Quarterly Earnings Release

If you’re planning on doing some holiday shopping at Macy’s this fall, you might encounter goods from another retailer. The department store announced today that it would test Best Buy outlets in 10 of its locations starting in November. Best Buy employees will staff the 300-square-foot sections that’ll offer a smattering of phones, tablets, wearables, audio gear and more. In terms of brands, Samsung is the only company mentioned by name, but you can likely expect a few more notable choices to be available as well (Beats, Jawbone, etc.). Samsung has dedicated floor space inside Best Buy locations alongside the likes of Apple and Sony after all, so the direct mention isn’t too much of a surprise. The store inside a store setups will remain in place into 2016, when Macy’s and Best Buy plan to take stock before plotting the best course of action.
