Augusta company feels impact of Macy’s closings
All local Macy’s stores are safe from the company’s recent closings, but a store in Alton, Illinois with ties to Augusta is on the chopping block. Hull Property Group purchased the Alton Square Mall in 2015. The Macy’s store there will close in the first quarter of this year. Sixty eight Macy’s stores are closing as more customers move to online shopping.
