Idaho AGC Going Up

Southern Idaho once had four Macy’s locations between Boise, Nampa and Twin Falls. Now the department store chain sells its wares in a single location at Boise Towne Square.

Construction crews will revamp a portion of that store to sell furniture items. The new sales area takes over the former children’s department which moved downstairs.

The retailer launched a new strategy in 2018 to upgrade its stores under a strategy it called “Growth50.” Among all the store closings, Macy’s said it would reinvest in remaining stores. Features like mobile checkout, new lighting and fixture upgrades launched at 50 stores last year.

Now, the chain is expanding the improvements to another 100 locations – as well as making upgrades across its entire chain.

Permit filings for the Boise store show a 5,400 square foot portion of the second floor will see upgrades. The new “big ticket” space will include a partial demolition in the store and a series of wall, fixture and ceiling upgrades. Macy’s used to sell furniture in the basement of its Downtown Boise store on Idaho St., which closed in 2010.

Macy’s said it is working to add a new Big Ticket department to many of its stores.

Last summer, Macy’s remodeled a portion of the first floor for an online service counter.
