The New York-based hedge fund Engine Capital reportedly wants Kohl's to explore the two alternatives to try to boost its stock price, WSJ said. The activist group sent a letter to Kohl's board on Sunday, the report said. Engine Capital owns a roughly 1% stake in Kohl's. Kohl's shares closed Friday at $48.45, roughly where they were trading a decade ago, giving Kohl's a market value of about $7.3 billion — less than that of Macy's but more than Nordstrom's. Kohl's stock is up about 19% year to date, underperforming the S&P 500. According to WSJ, Engine Capital said in its letter that assuming Kohl's brings in online sales revenue of about $6.2...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — While many had Thanksgiving off to celebrate the day with family, there were plenty of people who had to work. So, it’s only appropriate we here at CBS2 give thanks to all those who spent the holiday on the clock.

    There were floats, there were balloons, there were Broadway musical numbers, there were crowds standing shoulder to shoulder; after a dismal 2020 showing, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade returned to its pre-pandemic glory Thursday morning. “Spectators, shut out in 2020, lined the route again,” hailed the Associated Press. “High school and college marching bands from around the country were invited back to the lineup; most of last year’s performers were locally based to cut down on travel. The giant balloons, tethered to vehicles last year, got their costumed handlers back.” Though the Thanksgiving Day Parade went forward as planned in 2020, the show was marked by a noticeable absence of cheering crowds, high school marching bands from around the country, and the 2.5-mile parade route. Here’s how NBC New York advertised the event at the time: Although we are used to seeing the masses come together to see the grandiose balloons making their way down the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade route, this year the celebration will be a bit different. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade will air nationwide as a television-only...
    THESE are Macy's Thanksgiving Parade's most infamous balloon accidents from Sonic bursting to a cat that almost caused a plane crash. The spectacular annual event has come a long way since it was first held on November 27, 1924, when it was called the Macy's Christmas Parade and was without massive floating balloons. 5Back in 1993, the Sonic the Hedgehog balloon was plagued by strong windsCredit: Getty 5Barney the Dinosaur had a mishap in the 1997 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day ParadeCredit: Getty As multiple decades have passed since the first parade, here's a look back at some of the shocking mishaps that occurred over the years. SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Back in 1993, the Sonic the Hedgehog balloon was plagued by strong winds, which caused the inflatable character to crash into a pole on West 58th street. Sonic the Hedgehog wasn't strong enough for the wind speeds and got hit in the left eye with a lamp post. The impact caused a section of the balloon to tear and a part of the streetlight to fall into the paradegoers. Both a 10-year-old...

    In this article MThe entrances at Macy's are decorated with Christmas decorations on December 04, 2020 in New York City.Roy Rochlin | Getty Images Entertainment | Getty ImagesAs Macy's prepares to release its third quarter earnings on Nov. 18 ahead of retail's biggest season, the most pressing in the litany of investor questions will be: Has Macy's ability to build a dot-com business inside of a legacy brick-and-mortar foundation reached its limit? Macy's, which has said its digital sales will hit $10 billion in 2023, up from $7.6 billion in 2020, will likely say no. But given that Macy's dotcom sales have been outpacing same-store revenues for years — and that the company operates 788 stores across its portfolio — begs another question: Is Macy's current management team, led by the "quintessential department store executive," as one retail investor recently characterized Macy's CEO Jeff Gennette, the best choice for leading the nation's largest legacy department store into the new era of retail that is increasingly sophisticated, digital and dominated by digitally-native competitors like Amazon? Both questions have dogged Macy's since...

    In this article WRBY RVLV FTCH M Macy's Herald Square Flagship Department Store in Midtown Manhattan New York.Nicolas Economou | NurPhoto | Getty ImagesAn activist investor is pressuring Macy's to split its digital operations from its stores in a bid to unlock value at the 162-year-old department store chain. And while it might be an attractive move in the short term, some experts are raising red flags about the proposal's long-term logic. Activist shareholder Jana Partners is hoping to tap into what has been a buzzy market for digital retailers that is driving valuations higher. Investors have largely favored tech-focused names since the companies promise faster growth over traditional department store operators. The former have seen sales accelerate as consumers buy more goods online. E-commerce savvy retailers, such as Mytheresa and Zalando, are also considered asset-light because they have few to no stores. This allows management to invest in other areas of the business, like marketing. "The market is willing to pay a big multiple on an e-commerce-oriented business," said Michael Kollender, head of consumer and retail investment banking...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor Danny Strong pops up regularly in an eclectic batch of series ranging from the lightness of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Gilmore Girls” to the dark corruption of “Billions.” But when it comes to investing his time as an Emmy-winning writer and producer, there’s consistency in the projects, whether the subject is politics (“Recount,” “Game Change”) or race (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler”). Strong’s work is topical and trenchant. Hulu’s “Dopesick” fits the pattern. The eight-part miniseries about America’s opioid crisis weaves together the painkiller’s devastating toll and the actions of those who aided it or failed to stop it. Three episodes debut Wednesday on the streaming service, with the rest to be released weekly. “I want to work on things that feel important, the stories that need to be told,” Strong said. “When done correctly, these kind of stories, the weight of the subject matter and what they’re trying to expose, makes them better pieces of entertainment.” While some may equate socially relevant projects with being “good for you, or going to school, I don’t...
    In this article MMacy's Herald Square Flagship Department Store in Midtown Manhattan New York.Nicolas Economou | NurPhoto | Getty ImagesActivist investor Jana Partners is reportedly encouraging the department store chain Macy's to spin off its e-commerce business, in order to seek a higher valuation from the separate entity. Jana stated in an investor presentation Wednesday that Macy's online business could be worth about $14 billion, if it were to go through with the split, Bloomberg reported. Macy's current market value is $6.9 billion. The move would mimic a similar one from the high-end department store operator Saks Fifth Avenue, which earlier this year spilt off its digital business into a separate company. The deal valued Saks.com at $2 billion, or about double its annual sales. Representatives from Jana and Macy's did not immediately respond to CNBC's requests for comment. Shares of Macy's jumped nearly 4% on the report, erasing losses earlier in the day. The stock was recently up less than 1%, having doubled in value year to date.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Macy’s has filed a lawsuit against the company that owns the giant billboard next to its flagship Manhattan store, fighting to prevent Amazon from taking over the advertising space that carried Macy’s name for almost 60 years.

Campolindo, one of the Bay Area’s most successful programs under Macy over the past decade, really did lose on their home field in Moraga on Friday night to Aptos 49-0.

During the retailer's latest fiscal quarter, he said, some people were still not comfortable coming into a store, particularly those in urban areas such as New York City. "There is definitely the different psychology with suburban and the urban customers right now," CEO Jeff Gennette said during an earnings conference call. Many of Macy's stores in suburbs are performing ahead of 2019 levels, he explained, as consumers in those areas feel more comfortable with more space to roam around. The company's city-based stores remain the most challenged as international tourism has yet to come back, and people are more cautious about jamming into crowded spaces. Gennette cited Macy's flagship Herald Square location in Manhattan as an example of a shop that has yet to see visits return to...

The Toys R Us shop-in-shops in Macy's will roll out next year, the companies announced Thursday. A larger assortment of Toys R Us merchandise is now available on Macy's website.
