Macy’s To Reopen 68 Stores In States Relaxing Rules

Reuters reports:

Macy’s Inc plans to reopen 68 U.S. stores on Monday in states that have loosened coronavirus lockdowns, the department store operator said on Thursday, as more retailers sought to get business going after a crushing month of closures.

Cincinnati, Ohio-based Macy’s, the largest U.S. department store operator by sales, said it expects to have all of its 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 on May 11, it said. At this time, the company is not naming which store locations will reopen, a spokeswoman said. All of its stores have been closed since March 18.
