30 Apr Macy’s Plans to Reopen 68 Stores On Monday
Macy’s Inc plans to reopen 68 stores on Monday in states that reduced coronavirus lockdown restrictions, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The newspaper reported Macy’s Chief Executive, Jeff Gennette, as saying in an interview that he expected to have all of the company’s roughly 775 stores reopened in six weeks if infection rates taper off as projected and state and local governments allow it. The next batch of roughly 50 stores is scheduled to reopen May 11, the report said.
Macy’s will be among the first “non-essential” retailers to start to re-open its physical stores with others recently outlining plans to open slowly with restrictions in place.
