JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Looks like Macy's has some competition when it comes to apparel sales.  

Consumerist reports, Amazon is expected to surpass Macy's sales.   Experts believe this could be accomplished within two years, by 2017. 

Analysts say consumers are spending less when it comes to clothing and spending and more on electronics.  They say shoppers can go to Amazon to buy clothing for a cheaper price, as it can charge customers less.  This is because bricks-and-mortar stores have certain costs to pay for, unlike Amazon.
