Macy’s (New York) is partnering with WHP Global’s Anne Klein brand to host a holiday pop-up shop in New York’s SoHo, the retailers announced via email to Retail Dive.

The shop, at 542 Broadway, showcases styles from Anne Klein’s latest apparel collection, including evening wear and everyday clothing.

Since WHP Global acquired Anne Klein in 2019, the fashion brand has worked with Macy’s to expand its reach. In 2021, the department store introduced Anne Klein’s new home collection, including comforter sets, washcloths, towels and decorative pillows. That was followed last year by a furniture collection.

Under WHP, Anne Klein counts such companies as Bonobos, Babies R Us, Toys R Us and Express as sister brands. Macy’s also partnered with Toys R Us in 2021 to create shop-in-shops in 400 stores, and by the following year, accelerated that partnership to every Macy’s location.

Meanwhile, a buyout offer the department store chain reportedly received earlier this month is still lurking in the background for Macy’s. Two major Macy’s investors – Arkhouse and Brigade Capital – are in talks to take the department store private in a $5.8 billion deal, The Wall Street Journal first reported earlier this week. But thus far, none of those parties has commented publicly on the potential deal.




Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
