A view of interactive displays at STORY At Macy’s Presents: Outdoor! Bringing The Outdoors Indoors With Dick’s Sporting Goods And Miracle-Gro at Macy’s Herald Square on July 09, 2019 in New York City. A similar set up will be at Macy’s inside Ross Park Mall.

Macy’s in Ross Park Mall is one of 36 stores to have “Outdoor STORY,” a collaboration between Dick’s Sporting Goods and Miracle-Gro.

This venture, which runs through September, offers an outdoor-inspired playground that places a focus on entertaining, bringing the outside indoors, as well as recreational activities, according to a news release.

This concept explores a theme through a mix of merchandise from more than 70 brands.

When the chairman and CEO of Macy’s was approached about this collaboration he said it made a lot of sense and wanted to team with Ed Stack, chairman and CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods.

“I think people may be surprised and intrigued by our partnerships, and that is exactly what we wanted,” said Rachel Shechtman, Macy’s brand experience officer and founder of STORY, in a statement. “We want to show both consumers, as well as businesses, that collaboration is the new competition; bringing together brands as storytellers to add authority and authenticity to a subject matter, like we are doing with Dick’s and Miracle-Gro, benefits both the customer and the business.”

In conjunction with this venture, Ross Park Mall will host summer games, including a cornhole tournament from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday. Participants can win prizes.

There will be other events over the summer.

STORY is a retail concept that changes every few months.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
