Macy's store 'heralds' Avanti towels
August 6, 2002,
New York — Macy's has set up a wall over 40 feet tall that showcases 40 different collections of Avanti's embellished towel sets at its Herald Square store here at 34th Street.
"We've had the idea to do this for a long time, and now is when we were finally able to make a huge impact with the embellished towel category," Alan Natowitz, vp, dmm, home textiles, Macy's East, told HTT. "We have a close relationship with Avanti, and we wanted to make sure this display worked. And we believe it will be a success."
"It represents the largest display Avanti has ever had in any stor," said Michael Tauber, president.
In addition, Natowitz said, the plan is to add the display to other Macy's East stores this fall. "Maybe not in as grand a way,” he said, “because we don't have the same luxury of space at other stores."
