As your resident Macy’s expert, I would be remiss if I didn’t address the current state of Macy’s stores. It’s true, Macy’s temporarily closed stores to protect employees and customers alike in the midst of our current climate. But it’s what Macy’s continues to do to earn our trust that reinforces why we’ve shopped at Macy’s for years. Let’s review the facts and what it means for our future.

Macy’s Temporarily Closes Stores

Jeff Gennette, Chairman and CEO of Macy’s, Inc., announced in an email to all valued Macy’s customers that they made the difficult decision to temporarily close all Macy’s stores from March 18-31 as a result of the COVID-19 developments. This includes all Macy’s, Macy’s Backstage, Market by Macy’s and even Bloomingdale’s stores.

Macy’s store closures not only affect their in-store events, but also their distribution centers. Thankfully, Macy’s will continue to provide both compensation and benefits for employees impacted by these changes.

As Macy’s officials will no doubt keep evaluating the situation in partnership with health officials, Macy’s customers can continue to shop In fact, shopping will help support the store loyal fans have loved for over a century. Remember, you can also shop 24/7 on the Macy’s App.

One thing rang true in Gennette’s message: the health and safety of their customers, colleagues and communities remain their utmost priority. As much as I hope Macy’s reopens soon, I appreciate the precautions they are taking for the greater good.
