Toy store F. A. O. Schwarz is joining forces with Macy's. "F. A. O. Schwarz will open shops inside 685 Macy’s stores over the next two years, executives of the two retailers said Friday. It will be the first time in 20 years that Macy’s has operated a year-round toy department. The F. A. O. Schwarz shops, ranging from 200 square feet to 3,500 square feet, will carry a variety of F. A. O.-made products, many exclusive to Macy’s. The first 275 shops will open this fall, in time for the holiday shopping season." [NY Times]
