Macy's Focuses on e-Commerce with Website Updates and Employee Training for Customized Shopping Experiences
Macy's is preparing to overhaul its website and train some of its workforce to be personal stylists in a bid to win more customers searching for the latest fashion trends, the department store chain announced Tuesday.
The retailer's goal is to offer a more customized shopping experience, with one-on-one attention from staff in stores and easier to use online tools. It's looking to better compete against retail rivals — from department store competitors to boutique clothing shops to online-only fashion players specializing in offering style advice.

Certain employees will be enlisted into its "Style Crew" group, Macy's said. They will be paid a commission for helping to rack up sales as part of their participation in the program — and for their social media posts that lead to business.
