Sustainable Store Fixtures at Macy’s Help Achieve Green Living Goals

POSTED UNDER In the Details

Can T-stands, shelving, nested table sets, ballet bars, earring stands, wood and chrome that display merchandise on the sales floor be sustainable? Of course they can be. In early 2013, SPACE (Store Planning, Architecture, Construction and Engineering) partnered with Macy's Merchandising Group (MMG) to look for ways to increase the sustainability of fixtures. Factors the team considered included:

  • Origin of materials
  • Reusable and recycled content
  • Low VOC paint, adhesive
  • Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified wood

Some brands of fixtures offer more sustainability than others. When designers evaluate fixtures for merchandise displays, many variables such as availability and cost are taken into consideration. Macy’s designers are now also discussing sustainable attributes when bidding on new fixturing.

Next time you’re in a Macy’s store, try and spot some of your favorite brands displayed on environmentally friendly fixtures.
