Macy's to Open New Florida Store

CINCINNATI-Macy's will open a store in Sarasota, Fla. in fall 2014, the company said.

The two-level, 160,000-square-foot Macy's will be an anchor of the new Mall at University Town Center, on which construction will begin later this year. In Sarasota, Macy's will offer a full range of apparel and accessories for women, men and children, as well as housewares, home textiles and luggage.

"In Sarasota, Macy's serves a strong year-round community as well as a thriving population of tourists and winter residents. The University Town Center location will provide us the opportunity to serve new and existing customers with the distinctive fashion, great value and exciting shopping experience for which Macy's is known," said Peter Sachse, Macy's chief stores officer. "We will continue to tailor our offering in Sarasota to meet the unique needs of the customers who live, visit and work there, and we expect to continue to be active members of the community."

Macy's currently operates three stores in the Sarasota-Bradenton market--at Southgate Mall, Sarasota Square and DeSoto Square.
