Destination Maternity Corporation, the world's leading maternity apparel retailer, announced it will expand its maternity apparel leased department relationship with Macy's, the largest retail brand of Macy's, Inc., by becoming the exclusive provider of maternity and nursing apparel for macys.com, beginning late January 2014.

These leased departments typically carry a combination of Motherhood Maternity, A Pea in the Pod, A Pea in the Pod Collection and Jessica Simpson Maternity branded merchandise, with product assortments tailored to each store location consistent with the My Macy's localization approach.

"The ability to reach Macy's customers via the additional channel of macys.com will enable us to cater to even more moms-to-be, on an omnichannel basis, and provide them with immediate access at any time to a compelling and unparalleled assortment of maternity and nursing wear."
Jeff Kantor, Chairman, macys.com, stated, "We have made significant investments and progress to ensure our in-store and online experiences complement each other. We look forward to continuing this momentum for the key categories of maternity and nursing apparel through our partnership with Destination Maternity Corporation.
