The Macy’s department store at Sangertown Square in New Hartford is among locations the company is closing early this year, Macy’s Inc. confirmed Wednesday.
“The decision to close a store is always a difficult one, but Macy’s Sangertown Square is honored to have served our customers and the community over the past 25 years, and we look forward to continuing to do so at Macy’s Destiny USA, online at macys.com or on the Macy’s app,” Media Relations Director Carolyn Ng Cohen said in an email.
The news has been shared with employees, and regular, non-seasonal employees who the company cannot place at a nearby Macy’s store will be eligible for severance, including outplacement resources, she added.
A clearance sale is planned to last eight to 12 weeks.
Chicago-based Macy’s Inc. announced in early 2020 that it planned to close about 20% of its stores through the next two to three years. The latest round is reported ot include about 45 stores.
Sangertown Square is Oneida County’s primary enclosed mall. Other large stores there are Boscov’s department store, which replaced Sears; Target; and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
