Macy’s would like you to believe that everything’s dandy at their Herald Square headquarters, but alas, no one is exempt from a tanking economy. The third quarter just closed, and Macy’s lost a reported $44 million, a sharp the contrast to the $33 million profit the company boasted last year at this time. However, the CEO says that this is no indication of future earnings and that 2009 will turn out to be a profitable year. Why? For starters, they just announced Tommy Hilfiger will relaunch his children’s apparel line exclusively at the department store next season, with every intention of the line becoming a top seller. It’s a plan to bolster sales, but we’ll have to wait and see if it works. In the meantime, Macy’s, feel free to lure us in with an 80 percent off sale.
