Macy's is making newly released Google Wallet a big part of its fall campaign, bringing mobile commerce to the fore. The payment system, enabled by near-field communication technology with a smartphone, will launch in five cities: New York, Washington, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. "When you connect with customers in immediate and personal ways, you enhance brand loyalty and the shopping experience," said Orlando Veras, a Macy's spokesman.
