It's that time of year. We recently learned that K-Mart in New Hartford is closing and now Macy's has made a big nationwide announcement.
Macy's says they're closing 65 stores nationwide because of drooping sales attributed to online purchases and three of those stores ceasing to exist are in Upstate New York...
Sears already closed in Sangertown Square. Will Macy's be the next department store to leave the mall? Shoppers in New Hartford have seen businesses come and go from the long-standing shopping center and the potential loss of the retail giant would be another huge blow.
Now you can add Kohl's to the list of stores joining Macy's to be open on Thanksgiving Day. This is clearly an effort to get a jump on Black Friday madness which kicks off the holiday shopping season. Kohl's, Macy's and J.C. Penny open on Thanksgiving Day?
I say, YES, YES, YES !
