Macy's Chief Merchandising Officer Jeffrey Gennette said that to build sales among these groups that the company needs to "think from the customer's point of view" and align its resources to "move quickly and with focus." Macy's strategy to on appeal to local tastes has helped it continue to outperform peers such as J.C. Penney Co. (JCP) and Kohl's Corp. (KSS).
