Macy's in Carbondale to close

CARBONDALE, Ill. (KFVS) - Macy’s announced it will close its Carbondale location.

Management at the Carbondale store said that as of Monday, January 13, they will no longer do business as “Macy’s,” they will be under liquidation management. That means anything you buy from Monday on is a final sale.

Also, they said there will be no returns, like on Christmas items, and you will not be able to get Macy’s card discounts.

Management said the liquidation discounts will be off of the original price, and those discounts will increase as days go on.

According to Carolyn Ng Cohen, director of media relations at Macy’s, a clearance sale will start in January and run for about 8-12 weeks.

The Macy’s at the University Mall employs about 40 people. According to Cohen, regular, non-seasonal colleagues who they were unable to place at nearby Macy’s stores will be eligible for severance, including outplacement resources.

She said the decision to close a store is always a difficult one, but Macy’s is “proud to have served the Carbondale community over the past 29 years.”

They encourage customers to shop at the nearest Macy’s store in Cape Girardeau and online.
