Macy's Spokesperson: Susan Sarandon??? (Vanity)
09/14/06 | Self

Posted on 09/15/2006 6:39:40 PM PDT by Inspectorette

First vanity post - did a search on "Sarandon" and didn't see anything on this.

Mr. Inspectorette and I were astonished to see Susan Sarandon in a new Macy's commercial on our local Portland station.

If it's not her, she's got an identical twin. Has anyone else seen this?

It is her. Stupid idea on their part because she turns off so many people.

It looked like her to me. Apparently Macy's isn't interested in my business.

Macy's just took over Robinson-May in California, and Meier and Frank in the Northwest.

They sent us a store card to replace our Robinson-May card, and we WERE planning to use it, but not now.

I'm going to their website and if there's a "Contact Us" link, I'm going to let them know they've lost a customer.

I went to the Macy's website and e-mailed them:

"I was very unhappy to see your choice of a spokesperson in your new commercials.

Susan Sarandon and her radical left-wing political leanings are very offputting to a great number of people.

She is a typical Hollywood know-nothing who considers herself an authority on U.S. foreign policy.

While she is free to express her ignorant opinions (thanks to the freedoms we have in this great country that she loves to criticize), we are also free to not support entities that promote her.

My husband and I were very happy Robinson-May customers for many years, and we were recently mailed a Macy's card as a replacement. We will not be using it.

eleni, I had posted this in "Miscellaneous", because I wasn't sure if it was considered "News". Do you know if it can be moved into another category, so it will get more hits?

(I'm not real practiced in posting.)

If you saw the same commercial I saw tonight in Baltimore, you saw "Susan Sarandon- actress, philanthropist."

A philanthropist shouldn't be politically motivated. But that's just me and common sense.

Macy's also took over the Burdine chain in Florida and the Marshall Field chain in Illinois.

Saranwrap being a Macy spokesmanette has no effect on me because its merchandise and clerk staff leave me cold.

I agree - this topic should be widely distributed.

I'm not sure how to tranfer it either...but I have used the report abuse button to contact a moderator to transfer a thread. Or try this:

LOL - that's what I just did! I hit the "Abuse" button on myself and asked the Admin Mod to transfer it into "News".

It is her.Same ads being shown on local Boston stations.Interesting offer....give $5 to charity and get 20% off on anything in the store.

I'll never forgive Macy's for shutting down two Boston area landmark stores...Jordan Marsh and Filene's.

I like stores with a local flavor.If I wanted to shop in New York,I'd hop in my car and drive.

Just my 2c worth.

I grew up in a small town in central Massachusetts, and it was such a thrill for us to go into Boston to shop at Jordan Marsh and Filene's. Worcester also had a Filene's, but it just wasn't the same as Boston's.

My mother LOVED Filene's Basement!

I will never walk into a Macy's again. Further, I will ask my family members to do the same. What were they thinking?

Wally Kennedy: Red marking change in Joplin

The Joplin Globe

By Wally Kennedy

Globe columnist

If there is a theme for this column, it is the color red.

The Macy's red star can now been seen on the outside of the former Famous-Barr stores at Northpark Mall. The signs, covered until recently, were supposed to be unveiled this Saturday, when Macy's transforms itself into a national retailer with more than 800 stores in 45 states.

Macy's will roll out the red carpet, complete with Hollywood-style stanchions, red-star balloons and a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. All Macy's stores across the country will be giving away $10 electronic gift cards to the first 500 customers. One shopper will find a $1,000 gift card randomly mixed among the $10 cards. Customers must use their cards to see if they are a winner.

On Sept. 16, all Macy's stores will have a "Shop for a Cause" day. Macy's will donate tickets to local charities. The tickets will be sold by charitable organizations for $5 each - the proceeds of which they keep in full. Ticket holders then redeem their coupons at Macy's. They also will receive a bonus coupon for $10 off one purchase. In support of this program, Macy's has created a national TV spot, featuring actress Susan Sarandon, that will air in the days leading up to Sept. 16.

So where does the red star come from? It has to do with Rowland Hussey Macy, the man who founded Macy's in 1858 at 14th Street and Sixth Avenue in New York City. In his early days, Macy was a sailor. He adopted the red star as his symbol of success. His first-day sales totaled $11.06, but by the end of the first full year, sales had grossed almost $90,000. ......

Macy's took over the Foley's Department stores here in the Houston, Texas area. I was very surprised to see her as their spokesperson. Sheesh! I thought Macy's was supposed to have some class.

Just damn! I just saw this commercial. Been eyeing our new Macy's in Chesapeake for days and intended to go there tomorrow. They can forget it now.
