Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, August 13, 2007
Cincinnati – Macy’s Inc. announced plans to open a new distribution center in spring 2008 in Minooka, Ill., approximately 50 miles southwest of Chicago.
As the new, 850,000-square-foot facility in Minooka is phased-in, Macy's will phase out operations at its DC on Diversey Avenue in Chicago, which contains 1.55 million square feet spread over six stories of a building developed in stages since the 1930s.
The Macy's North furniture clearance store currently located in the distribution center will be relocated to leased space in a retail center near Fox Valley Mall in Aurora, Ill.
