Macy’s reportedly cuts store hours amid COVID surge, staffing problems

Macy’s has reportedly revised its operating hours for the month of January.

Macy’s has temporarily shortened the hours its stores are open for business in January — but not by that much.

The country’s largest department store has adjusted the operating hours of its stores from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. for the remainder of January, with the store hours remaining unchanged Friday through Sunday, reported CNBC. Depending on the location, some Macy’s stores would open at 10 a.m. and close at 9 p.m.

Macy’s did not comment on whether it was seeing an increase in employees testing positive for COVID-19.

“We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the CDC and jurisdictional guidelines as well as keep enhanced safety and wellness procedures in place,” a Macy’s spokeswoman said in an emailed statement to CNBC.

The company operates 516 Macy’s locations and 33 Bloomingdale’s stores.
