Macy’s And Bloomingdale’s Expand Same-Day Delivery Service To New Markets

Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s are expanding same-day delivery service to nine additional markets, beginning this month, for products purchased online at macys.com, bloomingdales.com and on both brands’ mobile-enabled websites.

“When we piloted same-day delivery in eight markets initially last fall, we learned that our customers appreciate the additional option of having their purchase brought to their home or office in a matter of hours. It is an important part of our value proposition as an omnichannel retailer serving customers who shop our stores and websites whenever, wherever and however they prefer,” said R.B. Harrison, Macy’s, Inc. chief omnichannel officer.

Together with eight same-day delivery markets piloted in fall 2014, the company now offers this service to customers in 17 markets.

The new same-day delivery markets, beginning this month, are: Atlanta (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); Boston (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); Dallas (Macy’s only); Honolulu (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); Las Vegas (Macy’s only); Miami/Ft. Lauderdale (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); New York City/Western Long Island (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s same-day delivery to NYC outer boroughs and suburban Long Island begins in August 2015; service to customers in Manhattan is expected to begin in October 2015); Orange County, CA (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); and Philadelphia (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s).

These new markets are added to the following ongoing same-day delivery markets: Chicago (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); Houston (Macy’s only); Los Angeles (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); Northern New Jersey (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); San Francisco (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); San Francisco Bay Area (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s); Seattle (Macy’s only); and Washington, D.C. (Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s).

Same-day deliveries to customers are powered by Deliv, a crowdsourced delivery provider, in collaboration with several major mall owners. The charge for same-day delivery from macys.com or bloomingdales.com is a flat $5 above standard ground shipping fee, according to the retailer.
