Macy's Backstage is coming to Tampa WestShore Plaza

TAMPA — Macy's will be adding its second area Backstage location at WestShore Plaza this June, the company confirmed on Tuesday.

Its newest location will be inside of the existing department store's third floor, according to the plans it filed with the city. Macy's opened its first Backstage location inside the department store at the Westfield Citrus Park mall in August.

"Macy's Backstage offers fashion-loving customers another way to shop at their favorite store by providing a store-within-store shopping experience featuring significant savings on fabulous finds," the store said in statement.

The retailer posted a Backstage manager position online late last week and the city granted its construction permit on April 17.

Backstage is set up like a TJ Maxx or Marshalls, but with a more limited selection. The Backstage stores stock discounted items that are different from Macy's usual merchandise.

Macy's has 165 total Backstage locations within its department stores.
