The holidays are near, and Macy's, Inc., is offering free shipping for its online customers for the first time, said a spokeswoman for the department store chain.

Margo advised that the offer excludes the delivery of furniture, mattresses and rugs.
Macy's also wants to let its customers know that the department store chain is having a Black Friday event, on Nov. 26, from 4 a.m., to 11 p.m., at all Macy's locations in the metro Atlanta area, said Margo.
Macy's stores will have Black Friday offers, including jewelry from $19.99, to $149; electronics from $14.99, to $99.99 and clothing from $24.99, to $99.99, she said.
"Macy's is excited to offer some of the season's most desirable gifts at incredibly compelling prices this Black Friday, and our new free shipping promotion for online orders will be a huge hit with customers," said Martine Reardon, executive vice president of marketing for Macy's, in a prepared statement.
