NEW YORK, NY – January 5, 2016 – Launching on Jan. 9, the award-winning Joy brand will join the roster of Macy’s Home Store, offering innovative products that make a difference and simplify everyday challenges. Fueled by the breakout success of her first product, the Miracle Mop®, Joy has spent the last 30 years creating solutions that make people’s lives easier, which inspired the star-studded film, “Joy,” by 20th Century Fox that released on Christmas Day.

The product line at Macy’s will include Miracle Mop®, Huggable Hangers®, My Little Steamer®, Better Beauty Case, MemoryCloud Pillow, and Forever Fragrant® Vase and Sticks. Joy will make an appearance at Macy’s Herald Square store in New York City on Jan. 9 – the day the brand launches nationwide.

“The Joy brand embodies everything we look for when considering the best home assortment for our customers,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “Joy’s innovative products have helped make home tasks easier for three decades, making her a true leader in the industry. We are thrilled to embark on this new partnership and to bring this product to our customers in Macy’s stores and on macys.com.”

An expert in designing, inventing and marketing innovative products for live content retailer HSN for more than 15 years, Joy holds more than 100 patents and trademarks.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring my products to Macy’s,” said Joy Mangano, “There is something magical about shopping at Macy’s and I know customers are going to experience that same magic when they discover my products in their stores nationwide.”
