Macys reported lower than-expected second quarter sales today and cut their profit outlook for the year. Some analysts fear the disappointed news will reverberate throughout the retail sector because Macy’s is looked at as a barometer of spending among middle- to upper-income shoppers.

To mark the occasion, the company plans to give away $20 gift cards to the first 100 customers. A ribbon cutting ceremony is set for 10 a.m.
The 19,000-square-foot outlet space will boast the “best of the Macy’s department store brand,” the company said.
The outlet’s opening comes less than a month after Macy’s closed its CityPlace location. The 108,000-square-foot store in CityPlace is one of 68 locations the retailer plans to close this year as part of a downsizing effort aimed at boosting the retailer’s digital sales, outlet stores and luxury beauty division.
