Macy’s department store is the latest retail vendor to postpone or cancel online-expansion plans in China during to the country’s recent economic slowdown. However, the store claims the stall in the plans is due to needing to learn more about the Chinese market and shoppers. China’s e-commerce market has grow in competition; a Neiman Marcus warehouse previously used to fill Chinese orders from the retailer even shut down this year. The online shopping market in China has increased by about 70% in the last 4 years. Despite the cancellation of the plans to expand the store in China at the current time, Macy’s CFO says the company continues to look at China as a place with great potential for future expansion.
