Macy's Inc. (M) said Monday it brought together almost 800 business partners to discuss and provide an update on industry trends, innovations and initiatives.

Macy's said a "program to enhance the customer experience" that encompassed 50 stores last year has been expanded to an additional 100 stores this year.

"With the continued success of this initiative, Macy's plans to add additional locations in 2020," the company said.

The retailer also said it was offering, for a limited time, free same-day delivery in select markets, for orders totaling $75 or more. Macy's said the end date and time of the limited offer will be at its discretion, after which "items eligible for the service with purchases totaling $75 or more can be delivered same day for an $8 fee."

Orders placed prior to noon Monday through Saturday or before 10 a.m. Sunday will be received the same day. Other orders will be delivered the following day, the company said.

Macy's also said an agreement with Zola, a site for wedding planning, will see the companies launch a wedding registry pilot partnership in November.

The retailer also said its seventh annual "Buy a Coat and We'll Donate One" campaign will begin Wednesday, Oct. 9, and run through Oct. 14. For every coat purchased, Macy's will donate a brand new coat, up to 35,000, to nonprofit Clothes4Souls.
