I always say these days if I am going to spend money shopping then I prefer it be with a purpose. And, let me honest it’s a great excuse for spending money on things we love.


Last week I had the chance to stop in at the Macy’s in Cedar Creek Mall located near Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Fort Bragg is home to the 82nd Airborne and one of the biggest military installations in the country. So you can imagine my excitement to learn that 50 percent of their employees are Active Duty Military Spouses and Veterans.

How Cross Creek Macy’s Honors Military Families?

As a customer, you tend to go into the store and get what you need and go on about your day. So when I had the chance to get a behind- the- scenes look at all the big and small details of how this Macy’s accommodates their biggest set of customers, it made me see Macy’s in a whole new light.

With the majority of their customer base being military families, Macy’s Cross Creek Mall wants to ensure they show their appreciation. For instance, they have several stations set up in the store dedicated to military using real pictures and geared towards military and special events they attend. In particular, they know military patrons love our red, white and blue so they place American made brands like Levi’s front and center. Another favorite station of mine was their Military Ball display as they offer amazing prices on ball gown apparel. They offer a Military Ball shoe selection in addition to a free styling service—Macy’s My Stylist.

I had the opportunity to spend a $100 gift card on my family and thanks to the awesome clearance deals racked up two pieces of clothing per family member. Plus, participating Macy’s offer a military discount and you’ll save majorly. We purchased everything from jeans to t-shirts and dress shirts.

What Else Does Macy’s in Fort Bragg Have Happening?

Macy’s Crook Creek recently saluted military families with a special day dedicated to them.  Military families received free flags, wrote letters to service members, made patriotic crafts, honored fallen soldiers and received beautiful wreaths with their purchase that supported the “Big Give Back Campaign“.

The Big Give Back For Military?

My experience above is just an example of how Macy’s honors military, but that’s not the only way. In fact, this July Macy’s in partnership with Blue Star Families, has launched The Big Give Back Campaign. This campaign not only supports Blue Star Families, but other military organizations like Team Rubicon and Bunker Labs.

So What’s The Big Give Back?

“Now through July 8, when you visit Macy’s and give $3 to support America’s returning veterans and military families, you’ll get a coupon for 25% off throughout the store.”

You can also donate the $3 online and use your 25% coupon online too. See shopping with purpose…right!

The donations will benefit national non-profits that support and empower veterans and military families to be leaders, team builders and problem solvers in their local communities. One hundred percent of the $3 donations will benefit three veteran and military family-focused organizations. Each organization will receive $1 from each donation.
