Steve Sadove, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Saks, commented, “We routinely evaluate the productivity, profitability, and potential of each of our store locations and may determine that closing a store is the right course of action from time to time. This planned closing is consistent with our strategy of utilizing our resources in our most productive Saks Fifth Avenue stores.”
Approximately 80 associates are employed in the Stamford store. All affected associates either will be offered transfer opportunities or will receive appropriate employment separation packages. “Store closing decisions are never easy,” continued Sadove. “We are very thankful for our Stamford associates, many of whom have worked with Saks for a number of years. As always, we are committed to providing our associates with needed assistance during this time.”
The Company has operated its Saks Fifth Avenue store in Stamford since 1983. The Company will continue to serve its customers in other nearby Saks Fifth Avenue stores including its New York City flagship and in the Greenwich, Connecticut location.
Saks Incorporated currently operates 43 Saks Fifth Avenue stores, 65 Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH stores, and saks.com. Saks Fifth Avenue is proud to be named a J.D. Power and Associates 2012 Customer Service Champion and is only one of 50 U.S. companies so named.
