One of the largest department stores in the Harrisburg area has reopened before it will soon permanently close.
Macy’s reopened on Monday at the Harrisburg Mall in Swatara Township.
“We are ready to welcome our customers back to Macy’s stores in the Harrisburg community,” Marc Mastronardi, chief stores officer at Macy’s said in a press release.
The store is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Back in January the retailer announced that the store at the Harrisburg Mall would close and a closing sale would last 10 to 11 weeks and would begin in May. But the store temporarily closed back in March when Gov. Tom Wolf ordered all non-essential stores to close.
It isn’t clear how many weeks the sale will last but the store is now holding its closing sale. A spokesperson did not have a closing date to share at this time.
Signs on the store’s doors say “STORE CLOSING”, “NOTHING HELD BACK!” and ENTIRE STORE ON SALE!.”
The store at the Harrisburg Mall opened in 2006 and has three floors.
The store at the Capital City Mall in Lower Allen Township reopened last week and will remain open.
Macy’s is offering free curbside pick-up from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the two stores. Most orders placed by noon will be available for same-day pick-up. Customers will call their local store once they arrive at the designated curbside pick-up location.
Macy’s has implemented the following related to COVID-19:
Frequent and enhanced cleaning in heavily trafficked areas and on hard surfacesSocial distancing guidelines to maintain six feet between all customers and colleaguesInstalling hand sanitizer stations in frequently visited locations throughout the store, as well as plexiglass at select registers.Macy’s is also asking employees to wear face masks
Pro Bass Shops and 2nd & Charles have also reopened at the Harrisburg Mall. Those stores opened at the Harrisburg Mall back on May 29 when Dauphin County moved into the state’s yellow phase. The mall itself is not permitted to open in the yellow phase. But stores with outside entrances can reopen.
