FEDERATED HELPLINE FOR VENDOR CHANGES
NEW YORK — Federated Department Stores said vendors for A&S, Jordan Marsh and Macy’s East must make certain carton-marking and associated documentation changes on anything shipped on or after Feb. 28, and can call 212-704-1613 for assistance. The changes reflect new store or department numbers and should not be made before Feb. 26. Federated is integrating the computer systems of those three chains and requiring that vendors conform to the Federated Transportation Routing Guide. Federated took over R.H. Macy & Co. last December.
