LensCrafters To Open 500 Locations Inside Macy’s Stores

Just two months after Macy’s announced it would team up with Best Buy to sell electronics in some locations, the retailer has entered another partnership, this time to sell eyeglasses, contacts and other vision-related services. LensCrafters will open 500 retail centers inside Macy’s stores around the country, expanding a deal between the retailer and Luxottica, which already has 670 Sunglass Hut locations inside the department store chain. The first outpost will open in April, with 100 others slated to start business by the end of 2016. [The Associated Press] [More]
